    Wake on LAN

    Hi,

    I am just wondering what system you use to WOL your machines? Do you have some sort of script to pull mac addresses from DHCP or something?

    Thanks

    A couple of methods, we have a script that adds the mac addresses (and other info) to the AD description. Also Lansweeper has a wol button on each machines details screen.

    We've got an app which grabs the Mac addresses and AD groups from our Spiceworks database so they can be woken up on a per machine or AD group basis, and updates automatically if the machine changes.

    It's custom written, I'm planning on making it available for download once I've ironed out a few problems with it, drop me a DM though and I'll get something sent over to you
