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.
