Anyone have a quick, fancy way of sending a WOL sig via a Machine Action? I've started testing a way via a 3rd party portable app but might as well save my brain cells if someone has a solution figured out already.

I could be wrong, but I don't think it's possible as a machine action because I'm pretty sure the system would need an amp connection in order to accept the MA.

Looks like it's planned in future revisions of the K1000: http://kace.uservoice.com/forums/82699-k1000/suggestions/2450903-add-wake-on-lan-option-to-k1000-device-inventory

Got it to work with WakeMeOnLAn...


The MA looks like this:

"\\sharepath\WakeMeOnLan\WakeMeOnLan.exe" /wakeup KACE_HOST_IP

You just have to do a scan of your segments first so the PCs name, IP, and MAC are in the .cfg file. A good alternate option to have to save a few mouse clicks here and there.
