    vPro - remotecontrol.exe doesn't power on

    jmakita

      I have 13 training room PCs that have the same system settings configured in MEBx.

      Each PC is setup with a static IP.  When powered on, I can remotely access all the PCs using VNC.  I then can use remotecontrol.exe to power down or reset any of the PCs.  However, once I power down 3 of the PCs, I can't use remotecontrol.exe to power the PCs back up immediately afterward.

       

      I swapped the network port with another PC that worked fine, but the problem is following the PC.  The 13 PCs connect to 2 switches in the network closet.  But each switch has multiple PCs that work fine using remotecontrol.exe.

       

      I have noticed these 3 PCs don't respond to pings when in the powered down state.  The other 10 PCs do this as they should since all are configured to respond to pings in MEBx.

       

      I issue this command to control the power state or restart the PC:

      remotecontrol -hostname COMPUTERXX -user admin -pass ****** -powerup

       

      Any sugggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you.
