Hello all,

I recently installed proxmox 5.2-1 on my Dell poweredge r210 ii. I am using the built in NIC thats on the motherboard. I am able to manually enable WOL by using the command ethtool -s eno1 wol g where eno1 is the network interface. How can I make this permanent? Anytime I reboot or shutdown the server, the setting goes away and WOL becomes disabled so I cannot turn it on via WOL after the next shutdown. I tried using crontab -e and entered @reboot /usr/bin/ethtool -s eno1 wol g but that has not seemed to do anything. I tried some of the suggestions on the debian wiki for WakeOnLan but had no luck. Any ideas?

@funnystone64 do you have find any solution?

Solution i do by myself:

Code:
apt-get update && apt-get install ethtool
nano /etc/systemd/system/wol.service

[Unit]
Description=Wake-on-LAN for <interface id>
Requires=network.target
After=network.target

[Service]
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/ethtool -s <interface id> wol g
ExecStop=/usr/sbin/ethtool -s <interface id> wol g

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target


Code:
systemctl start wol.service
systemctl enable wol.service
systemctl is-enabled wol.service
systemctl daemon-reload

I can't recognize any devices related to a WoL or ethtool.
