Wake on Lan for Virtual Machines for 6.1+

Recommended Posts

I'm on my phone through vpn but the wake on lan app by mike webb didn't work when it used to also. It maybe because of the vpn. So in the app, I changed the wake on lan settings for my ubuntu vm from x.x.x.255 broadcast to x.x.x.1 which is my server and it worked. But you said you had tried that.

 

I noticed to that the default in domain.cfg is vibr0. Maybe double check your vm is still br0. Also I don't have spanning tree protocol on. Don't know if that matters.

 

The interface should be listening on the bridge but you could try the script with eth0 instead of br0. See if it works and see if what did work still works also.

 

I will try some more tests when I'm at home. Maybe there are some changes between the different versions of libpcap or libvirt.

I have investigated this further. Seems the new default vm config broke things. Setting virbr0 to br0 immediately got things working again.

 

Seems like the unraid vm default bridge needs to be the same as the one set within a vm's template for things to work.thanks for the help :)

 

update.. doesn't work again. This time the bridges match.

 

Seems this is still an issue  :-X

That sucks. I haven't had a chance to test anything yet. Let me know what you try again. I would try other apps and point it to your unRAID ip also.

I ran some tests starting up a Ubuntu and Windows 7 VM using  the WOL android app, my wol plugin and Asus router.  I tried both ip of the unRAID server and broadcast on the same network. All worked as expected and tke VM's started up each time.

So I have stopped using the openelec builds and Wol started working again... seems this had nothing to do with your plugin after all.

 

My tvheadend now works inside a vm, so no need for those custom builds anymore ::)

What's your setup?  I have a Mythbuntu VM with 2 cable card network tuners. And run NUC's with Openelec at all the TV's.

Previously it was all docker with a USB dvbc card.

 

I have just switched to a (techno trend ct2 4500) PCIe card which doesn't work with the custom driver builds.

 

I have just done a quick Ubuntu server install with tvheadend because it works well with my cable provider (and ci card), has German picons and supports Plex. Pretty fine setup if you only require one concurrent stream/recording :D

 

PCIe pass through has become an ease to set up with the latest betas

Not sure where it went but I pushed it again. Should work now.

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but for anyone that may come to this thread from Google, I have used dmacias' great work and adapted for use with Proxmox. I have posted the info to the Proxmox forums here: https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/wake-on-lan-script.32449/#post-160160

It's no problem. It's still active, just not many issues. I just updated the plugin but the script is still the same.

Ok thanks
Let me know if it works. I need to update the libvirt-python package to match and a few other things.

prior to your fix I modified the plugin and removed the reference to d/l the python package, the plugin installed OK on 6.4 RC13.

Hi everyone,

 

I installed Unraid 6.4 stable and was using the WoL Plugin on my old installation without any issues.

However, now with a fresh installation I always get the error message that Pyton 2 is not istalled.

Can you explain me how I get it runnign as the Nerdpack plugin seems to be installed?

 

Thanks and sorry if I overlooked something.

I just figured it out... wondering that it was working previously because I thought all plugins are activated by default.

Thanks for your hint.

Hi All!  New to unraid.  Been setting up my new box.  Loving it so far!!

 

Having some problems setting up the wake on lan plugin for VMs.  This is all some background on my investigation of the problem.  See the update below

 

When I generate WOL packets through several means from a computer on the same subnet, I can see the packet get picked up by the nic.  I dont like that is says disgard at the end. 

tcpdump -i br0 udp port 9
tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode
listening on br0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 65535 bytes
19:18:39.609149 IP ScubaSteve.56209 > 255.255.255.255.discard: UDP, length 102
19:19:47.380846 IP ScubaSteve.64090 > 192.168.1.255.discard: UDP, length 102
19:19:47.380855 IP ScubaSteve.64090 > 255.255.255.255.discard: UDP, length 102

tcpdump -i br0 udp port 7
tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode
listening on br0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 65535 bytes
19:25:42.838792 IP ScubaSteve.50330 > 192.168.1.255.echo: UDP, length 102
19:25:42.838803 IP ScubaSteve.50330 > 255.255.255.255.echo: UDP, length 102
19:25:50.215074 IP ScubaSteve.50331 > 255.255.255.255.echo: UDP, length 102

 

My /var/log/libvirt/libvirtwakeonlan.log remains empty and my VM's powered off.

 

I have verified that the command "virsh start "My Windows 7 VM"" will start the vm.  My VMs are all using BR0 not VIRBR0.

 

UPDATE!!

Running python /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/libvirtwol/scripts/libvirtwol.py br0 allows the VM to start via WOL, and shows entries in the log!  This happens regardless of what the plugin status is under VM Manager settings.  I've tried it being reported as Running and being reported as Stopped.  I'm guessing that when I start the plugin something is not running properly (and reporting that it is), or it's not listening on the correct interface.  How can I investigate this further?

6.6.2.  Should be the latest one.  

 

No change with your latest update that I just installed.

Actually 6.6.3 is the latest.
