• WOL Broken

    • Annoyance

    After updating to 7.0 RC2 my server will not wake up any longer when a WOL magic packet is sent to it...normally I would use the S3 sleep plugin to sleep the PC and then send a WOL packet from my primary server to wake up this server...it is no longer working...


    It was working for 3 years up until I updated to the latest RC...


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!


    Anyone else have the same issue?


    Seems to be an issue with the kernel:  https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Linux-4.19.1-Released

    Why is this marked urgent, please change to annoyance.


    Ps1. sleep isn't officially supported by Unraid

    Ps2. did your server change IP address and WOL is sent to the wrong IP?

    1. OK...understood, but it has been working for years for me though...

    2. No...still the same IP...

    How do you come to this conclusion?  (though probably it is)

    It worked for a few years perfectly until the latest 6.7.0 RCs...


    Also googled WOL issues with linux kernel 4.19...

    Thanks for taking a look!

    I have the same issue with a motherboard MSI H55M.
    WOL worked perfectly until version 6.6.7 of unRaid.
    Since version 6.7.0 the WOL no longer works.
    Have you planned to make a fix ?

    Thank you
