Wakeonlan not waking

Hi all, I used to be able to wake my HP Proliant server using either Windows or Linux wol clients, however that was when it was running Windows, since installing Linux (I've tried OpenSuse and Debian ) I can't wake it up , I've tried wakeonlan / etherwake from my other Debian box and EMCO tools from a Windows 7 box ( all of which worked before ) and no worky. , I've checked the MAC address and it hasn't changed ( I have known them to change by something cloning them ) so I'm asking you experts.

Some progress - if I pull the power cable out after shutting down the server wol works first time but if I shut it down with

poweroff -f
or
shutdown -h now

it doesn't wake up.

Hi all, I have it working,, instead of using the dual port nic of which I believe one port is designated for the integrated lights out utility I fitted another nic and it worked straight away - no ethtool or changes to interfaces file it just worked - so I don't know why wol wont work using the other nic but hey ho
