WakeOnLan on Windows

Post by johnnyta »

Hi there,

I setup CGRU running on Windows and now I am trying to use WoL.

As far as I know, we just have to edit the value of "wol_idlesleep_time" in farm.json. Is that correct?

I tried to set wol_idlesleep_time = 3600. And when there is no task, all the idle machines were put to sleep, that's nice. But when I created a new render job, although Afanasy server sent magic packet to machines, and on Afanasy Watch, the states were "Waking up...". No machine was going to be logon again.

I used a Windows app named "Wake On Lan Magic Packet" and it managed to wake these machines up.

The question is: what did I do wrong? What else I need to config?

Thanks in advance!

May be you should enable this feature is some other place(s).
For example:
https://www.groovypost.com/howto/enable ... indows-10/

wolwake is a simple cmd:
https://github.com/CGRU/cgru/blob/maste ... olwake.cmd

that runs simple python:
https://github.com/CGRU/cgru/blob/maste ... wolwake.py

To debug it, you can test it w/o Afanasy. Just by hand.
