To implement Wake on LAN in your Patch Manager deployment, ensure that:

  • All target systems include a network interface card (NIC) that supports Wake on LAN.
  • All target systems have Wake on LAN enabled in the BIOS.
  • Patch Manager can connect to the target systems using a UDP broadcast.

    By default, many network devices do not forward UDP broadcasts. For best practice, initiate Wake on LAN from the local subnet containing the target system by configuring additional Patch Manager servers with the Automation Server role to any subnets that contain Wake on LAN targets.

  • You set up Wake on LAN in the Patch Manager Administrator Console to collect the MAC address of all targeted systems on one or more subnets.
  • You scheduled the Wake on LAN task in the Patch Manager Administrator Console.
