I am looking to setup WOL on a set of servers. These are Dell PowerEdge R210 servers running Centos 6.0. I searched the BIOS and I couldnt find the WOL option. My power management in BIOS has only
i) CPU Power and Performance Management ii) Fan Power and Performance management iii) Memory Power and Performance Management
In linux :
The output of my ethtool eth1 :
[root@hgcc04 ssubbiah]# ethtool eth1 Settings for eth1: Supported ports: [ TP ] Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Full Supports auto-negotiation: Yes Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Full Advertised pause frame use: No Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes Speed: Unknown! Duplex: Half Port: Twisted Pair PHYAD: 1 Transceiver: internal Auto-negotiation: on MDI-X: Unknown Supports Wake-on: g Wake-on: d Link detected: yes
I can enable the Wake-on magic packet by using "ethtool -s eth1 wol g" but still it doesnt seem to work. Can someone please let me know whether my machine has the capability to work with WOL and how to get it to work?
