Using Wake-on-LAN

Using Wake-on-LAN

Wake-on-LAN enables you to power-on devices remotely from the K1000 appliance regardless of whether the devices have the K1000 Agent installed.

For Wake-on-LAN, the K1000 broadcasts UDP traffic on your network on port 7. The K1000 sends 16 packets per Wake-on-LAN request because it must guess the broadcast address that is required to get the “Magic Packet” to the target device. This traffic is ignored by devices that are not being powered-on remotely, and the traffic should not have a noticeable impact on the network.

Issue Wake-on-LAN requests

Issue Wake-on-LAN requests

To wake multiple devices at once, you can specify a label to which those devices belong, or you can wake devices individually.

If the device you want to wake is not inventoried by the appliance but you know the MAC (hardware) address and the device’s last-known IP address, you can manually enter the information to wake the device.

1.
Go to the Wake-on-LAN Schedules list.
a.
Log in to the K1000 Administrator Console, http://K1000_hostname/admin. Or, if the Show organization menu in admin header option is enabled in the appliance General Settings, select an organization in the drop-down list in the top-right corner of the page next to the login information.
b.
On the left navigation bar, click Distribution, then click Wake-on-LAN.
2.
Select Choose Action > New > Simple.
To wake individual devices, select devices the Managed Devices field. To search the list, begin typing in the field.
To wake Discovered devices, select devices in the Discovered Devices field. To search the list, begin typing in the field.
In the IP Address field, specify the IP address of a device.
In the Manual Entry section, specify the MAC address of a device.
5.
Click Run Now.

The results at the top of the page indicate the number of devices that received the request and the labels, if any, to which those devices belong.

Schedule Wake-on-LAN requests

Schedule Wake-on-LAN requests

Scheduling a Wake-on-LAN request is useful when you want to wake devices on a regular basis. This is useful for recurring tasks, such as performing monthly maintenance.

1.

a.
Log in to the K1000 Administrator Console, http://K1000_hostname/admin. Or, if the Show organization menu in admin header option is enabled in the appliance General Settings, select an organization in the drop-down list in the top-right corner of the page next to the login information.
b.
On the left navigation bar, click Distribution, then click Wake-on-LAN.
2.
Select Choose Action > New > Advanced.
To wake devices by operating system, select the operating systems of the devices you want to wake in the Operating Systems field. Otherwise, leave the Operating Systems field blank to wake devices with any operating system.
4.
In the Schedule section, specify the schedule settings:
