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:
If the computer is a "Push Only" computer, that is its Windows Agent Action Interval parameter is set to None, the computer immediately polls for the assigned jobs and the Windows Agent immediately executes the jobs.
If the computer's Desktop Agent has a defined Action Interval parameter and the Boot Priority is set to 0 in the Boot and Security tab of the Edit Computer Properties dialog box, the computer immediately polls for the assigned jobs and the Windows Agent immediately executes the jobs.
If the computer's Desktop Agent has a defined Action Interval parameter and the Boot Priority is set to 1 or greater in the Boot and Security tab of the Edit Computer Properties dialog box, the computer repeatedly polls at the specified Action Interval. The Windows Agent executes the assigned jobs at the first polling interval that falls within the Action Period specified in the Time Control section of the <Server Name> Properties dialog box.
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.
