Implicit Wake Up

CCM implicitly wakes up managed computers that are compatible with the Intel Wired for Management (WfM) standard and its Remote Wake-Up (RWU) feature.

NOTE: The CCM Command Center does not check to see if any managed computer is WfM-compatible. When CCM sends a wake-up call to a computer that is not WfM-compatible, the call is ignored.

When a software job is assigned to the managed computer, and the computer is turned off and not registered with the CCM server as an active machine, the CCM server automatically broadcasts a request to all known Wakeup Proxy Servers to wake up the computer. No separate action from the CCM Command Center is required.

An implicit Wake Up call immediately wakes up the computer; the resulting behavior of the computer depends on the following factors:

NOTE: If the managed computer is manually shut down after the wake up call but before the Action Interval, the wake up call is not resent and the computer remains turned off. In order to have the job executed, you must explicitly wake up and push the job to the computer.

The CCM Notification service controls network load for push tasks, based on settings in the ccmnotify.cfg file. For more information about this file, see the ON Command CCM Reference.
