No WoL on Maas


#1

I’ve some devices that work only with WoL (Wake on Lan) after the boot from Pxe I see that on Maas (ver. 2.5.0) but there isn’t any the option about WoL as Power Type.
Someone knows how i can resolve that? thanks

MAAS needs to be able to power on, off, and check the power status of a machine. WoL only allows for a machine to be turned on which is why it is not supported. MAAS does have the manual power type to allow to manually power control a machine. Otherwise you may want to look at getting a PDU which is supported by MAAS.
