Wake on LAN Template

Wake on LAN can be configured to wake client systems on the network. This feature must be supported by the client system hardware.

To wake systems on the same subnet as the Management Utilities server, select Local Subnet Broadcast and enter the broadcast subnet IP address.

Because routers do not normally forward broadcast packets, two features are available to wake systems on another subnet. A unicast packet can be sent to a target system. The nearest router to the target system must have a static entry in its ARP table for that system.

The Broadcast Relay feature sends a wake packet through a relay system on the target subnet. The relay system must be running the System Client and must be managed by the System Area Manager. To configure a template using broadcast relay, enter the broadcast subnet IP and the name or IP address of the relay system.
