Powershell - Wake On Lan
We're having some issues getting machines to WOL. We recently Vlan'd our entire network and I suspect this is what is causing the problem.
We don't want to think about reconfiguring switches etc yet so I'm looking to write a powershell script that would invoke a wake up.
I've googled around but half of the scripts I've found don't work (I get script errors etc) I just think it would be easier to write my own, but I'm not sure what cmdlets I'd have to push to get the desired results.

It will probably be the VLAN. WOL is a broadcast and VLANS block broadcast.
If you use CISCO you need to setup an ACL something like this if i recall
access-list 101 permit udp host any eq 7
This will help - Catalyst Layer 3 Switch for Wake-On-LAN Support Across VLANs Configuration Example - Cisco Systems

We had the same issue on our vLAN'd network....
It was getting too complicted for me so had to ditch the idea - was spending too long and not getting anywhere
