Wake up command no longer working

Recommended Posts

Hi,
First time posting here; been using Pulseway for years without issue.

Recently, however, I am seeing a number of issues with the wake up command. Neither the web interface, nor my app (android, Galaxy s7 edge) while on cellular connection works resulting in a 'wake up command failed' message. To further complicate the issue, I can only get the wake up command to work over wifi as long as I'm on my home network. Until recently, it worked over the internet, which is desired.

I've looked at all my settings & configurations, but everything seems to be as it was. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it, particularly troubleshooting WOL over 4G failing messaging.

Thanks!

For Windows machines, I have found that the wake up command needs a few things to work.  First, the system being woken up must be connected via a wired network connection.  WOL usually doesn't work over a WLAN connection.  (This may be possible, but none of my system support WOL over WLAN)   Second, there must be another system on the same network to send the WOL packet.  So either my monitoring device (tablet or phone) must be on the same network, or there must be another system monitored by Pulseway on the same network.  So for example, if I have two monitored systems on the same network, and one is  asleep, I can send a wake up command from my phone over cellular data from outside that network.  If there is only one monitored system on a network, and my phone is not connected to the same network, I cannot wake it up.

There are just what I've figured out on my own, but hopefully this will be helpful to you.

We've designed Pulseway to be able to wake your system even without your phone being on the same network as the system you're trying to wake. Make sure that the system you're trying to wake up has WOL enabled in BIOS, you've created a NAT rule for UDP 9, you're using a wired ethernet connection and you have the NIC drivers from the device manufacturer rather than the ones shipped with the OS.

      Hi there,
      This is usability issue that leaves Pulseway's surveillance under high suspicion.
      We work exclusively in Windows servers.
      My colleague has installed last week a new Pulseway Agent over a server of a new client and he forgot to report this so that I could increase the number of licences resulting that since last week a Pulseway agent from another client's backup server stopped communicating and so we where not aware that backup needed troubleshooting. In fact the server disappeared from our servers
      As I understood the new Pulseway agent kicked out a random Agent already under surveillance and that means that a server that we had total confidence to be monitored was not.
      I'm new in the company and this software and when I've discussed this with my colleagues they've reported to be a known issue and that sometimes the Pulseway agent that stopped being monitored would varied meaning that one server randomly would stop being monitored and then the behaviour would jump to another agent.
      In the Billing/Overview section of your page it always had 72/72 and so no report of "overbooking".
      For this server's agent to show again in the panel I had to re-register it.
      IMO the new ones should stay offline and if this behaviour cannot be controlled, then the moment a client doesn't have licenses the agent shouldn't be able to register.
      We need to be sure that we can rely on the servers where Pulseway agent is installed and configured or we cannot trust the system altogether.
      Thank you for your attention.

      Would love a way to silently install and run Dell command update utility to Dell endpoints to keep drivers up to date, as Dell are frequently rolling out driver updates.
      Has anyone been able to make this work for them? 
      I've looked into it and found some sample scripts on reddit to try and edit and test. the problem I have is getting dell command update to install first, then getting the configuration file out to the required computers that need it, then running the update silently. 
      If someone has managed to get this working, I would love to see how you did it, or kindly ask for some sample scripts to work with?
      Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi,
      I have configured and applied default storage notification policy to all my Windows workstations that is set to send a notification when the system partition has less than 5% with priority elevated.
      But all the notifications I get about storage say: The free space on disk drive C: on computer computername in group groupname - Office - Workstations' is below 15% (ex. 16.24 GB free of 118.18 GB).
      How can I make the applied policy to respect the right percentage specified in the group policy?
      Do

      I have one customer workstation (actually a laptop) that I cannot assign a patch policy.  All of the other systems in this customer group are fine.  When I try to assign it via my mobile, I get "change OS patch policy command failed".  Nor can I assign it via the Pulseway Web app - it shows "no actions available" for that one system.
      I tried remotely restarting the laptop, and I tried repairing the local agent installation, but no joy.
      Any suggestions?
      Thanks!
      Bob
