KACE Product Support Question

Forcing machines to check in on a scheduled basis in Dell Kace

02/17/2015 1686 views
Is there a way, using Dell Kace, to force computers to wake up (or boot up) and check-in? I'm noticing a lot of our inventory has not checked in for a while (anywhere from a few days to a few months). It's not uncommon for some computers to be offline for a while when not in use. However, it throws off our inventory and reporting when machines aren't checking in regularly. 

Your help is appreciated.

Depending on the BIOS settings you may be able to accomplish this using a scheduled wake on LAN packet. You can find those settings in the Distribution, Wake-on-LAN page of the appliance. Your machines will need to be configured to respond to the WOL packet, of course.
