Hi,

is it possible to enable WOL on a poweredge 2900 server - i want to boot up 
the system from S5 (PowerOff) Mode with the magic packet.

ethtool reports its disabled, however changing it to "g" (magicpacket) does 
not persist after rebooting.

So is it possible to get WOL with a standard poweredge 2900 (two broadcom 
nics) or not?
And if it is, how can it be done - i've seen nothing in OpenManage or BIOS 
to "enable" it.

thx

Torsten
