Wake up with Script Builder




Performing Wake-On-LAN using the new Script Builder, tutorial:




Step 1:
Navigate within MAX Remote Management's Dashboard to the target device intended to wake up.  Collect the MAC address of this target from the "Assets" tab, "Hardware" sub tab.


  Step 2:
Make sure the target device is configured for Wake On-LAN abilities.  This may need to be configured in both the BIOS as well as within the Operating System.



Step 3:
 Within MAX Remote Management, navigate to: "Settings" > "Script Manager".  In the top right, locate "Script Builder" to download and install.  After installing on a Windows platform, open the application and select "New Script".

Step 4:
Give the script an appropriate name (such as: Wake On LAN), then click "OK".  Search within Script Builder for "wake", then drag the object into your script.

  
Step 5:
Select "Start", click "Add", then type in the MAC address retrieved in Step 1.  Click "OK".



Step 6:
Click the link icon, then choose the 'StartObject' previously added.


Step 7:
 Upload your new script (/.amp file) to your "Script Manager".

Step 8:
Assign the Task to a device on network that you wish to wake the target device from.  Be sure not to add the Task to the intended target directly.








That's it.  Pretty simple!  Enjoy.
