Wake on lan

We are experiencing that some server blades turned off, are "magically" restarted via Wake On Lan.

This happens in some old BL685 G6, but probably in the past happened also in other systems.

The solution we are using is to disable in the BIOS the feature, anyway it would be nice to know

who is sending that request (changing the option requires to access to the BIOS).

In the ILO log it is not specified the sender. We might filter what is happening in the

network reserved for ILO, OA, etc..., there are other suggestions to find what is

sending those packets ?


Thank you,

all the best,
