Dell Poweredge 850 WOL - Wake on LAN

Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Can someone give me instructions to get a Dell PowerEdge to wake up from a magic packet sent from a pc on the same lan (using SolarWinds WOL free on Windows).

The server is running Windows 2003 x64 R2 SP2, not that the installed os should make a difference.  

Bios is A04.

I do not see a setting in the Bios to enable WOL.  They're broadcom netextreme nics, built in.  Options in the bios are disabled, Enabled with PXE, Enabled without PXE.

There's also the IPMI options (Ctrl+E) at startup.  I haven't played with those settings.

Thanks
