Wake On LAN
Posted 07 April 2013 - 11:24 PM
WOL is nicely working on win2003 server.
But when I try to wake the client's machine from win2008serverR2 (sending magic packets from 2008Server to other machine) its not waking up.
I did some research on that and got to know-
-> before installing Active Dir on 2008server it is waking up other machine nicely.
-> As I install AD on it, WOL got failed.
Is there some policy needed to be set or any other setting to be done to solve the problem?
Thanks & Regards

Are you sure the windows 2008 R2 firewall is configured properly to allow sending WOL packet (i.e: allow sending udp packet on port 7/9) ?
The problem is not due to firewall.
I see there are two n/w adapters in my server machine and both are enable. I disable one (which is not in use) and try WOL again... Its working now.
But this is not a permanent solution and there may be need to enable it in future.
Can I modify magic packet in such a way so that the problem get resolved?
