  • DPM issues - WOL

    (originally posted in Hyper-V, Sorry!)

    I have a VMware 4 setup and I would like to use Distributed power management and get the hosts to go to sleep at off peak times.


    I have read the howto article and this requires the NICs on the ISCSI network to be able to wake up using WOL.

    I have 3 hosts all using quad port Intel 82575GB cards, but when I go into the properties of the network adapters on the VCS, under “Wake on LAN Supported”, it says “No”.

    This is a very popular NIC and recommended for VMware, and I can’t believe that it will not support WOL.

    Has anyone had any similar problems implementing DPM using similar hardware?

    Is there anywhere I can switch WOL on the NIC bearing in mind they are sitting in Poweredge 2950s with ESX 4 on?


    Any other suggestions that involve limited downtime would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks guys

    Although it's not like your issue it might be a driver issue.
