hi all,

ive set up wol on my mobo bios but now i need to enable it on my pve host, how do i do this please

well i thought it worked and guess what...it didnt

so what i did was swap the management bridge and the vlan bridge interfaces over and it worked

ethtool eno2

it was g and enp2s0 was d (even with the change with reboot i did so didnt work)

i went into file

nano /etc/network/interfaces

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface enp2s0 inet manual

iface eno2 inet manual

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
        bridge-ports eno2
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

auto vmbr1
iface vmbr1 inet manual
        bridge-ports enp2s0
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0
        bridge-vlan-aware yes
        bridge-vids 2-4094

so i literally swapped the bridge-ports over and then swapped the physical cables and all good
