Sometimes when a device is down since a long time, we can't wake up it, when connect it in a differnet lan (another site for exemple).

This is what i thought:

 

WOL for devices down since a long time

 

Do a ping test not with IP but with devicenameusing direct search an inverse search in DNS

    If DEVICENAME unknown (this device is down since a long time) Then

 

        Send a WOL order on all the relays to Wake up this device

    Else

        Do a Classic WOL (WOL actually use in BMC)

        Ping the device with its name (20 packets)

        If no response then

            Send a WOL order on all the relays to Wake up this device   

        End

    End
