Rob,

Per the manual the CR7 and CR8 rack mounted HMC are equal to the x3550 M4
server. The manual for that one claims that WoL is supported on the
ethernet port 1 only and says something similar to what you found, that the
OS must support WoL (that is weird, unless the OS' driver is needed to
initialize the lan card or something?).

The more i think about it the more i believe it's a better idea to just use
the IMM2:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/systemx/documentation/index.jsp?topic=/com.lenovo.sysx.7914.doc/t_obtaining_ip_imm.html

Think of the IMM2 as the equivalent to the ASMI in POWER servers.

Tell us how you end up solving it.

Best Regards (and best wishes for the new year)

Roberto

Most BIOS (UEFI) support a setting "what to do when plugged into AC?"
whose
options are "nothing, last state, turn on". If the scenario includes
finally turning off the UPS you might get by with that. Otherwise, Wake On
Lan features are implemented at the BIOS (UEFI) and lan controller level
so
the OS that runs on the server doesnt matter.
I would search for the compatible System X manual and how to configure
Wake
on lan on that server.
I'm currently traveling and don't have access to most of my manuals but
you
should be able to find it with that.

Another way would be the IMM, all System X servers have IMM (currently
IMM2) which you can use to turn on and off the server and if the correct
keys were purchased you even get the IP kvm, i think you can even get the
IMM to share the ethernet port with the normal LAN one.

Best Regards,

Roberto

I have a 7042-CR8 HMC. I would like to configure "Wake on Lan". Is
this
possible? I googled for this and what I found says the hardware for
some
models of the HMC support this but it's up to the software. This makes
it
sound like if you initialize the hard drives and replace it with
Windows,
and run Windows based applications instead of HMC, it can be done.

Apparently there is other interest:

Scenario:
Power fails.
You're running on UPS.
You're ordered to shutdown the Power 8 (it's ok, you're replicated) and
the HMC to save remaining battery life for other devices.
Extended power outage. You go home.
Power is restored.
You could bring up the Power 8 remotely if the HMC was running.
