I just recently build my first NAS-Server using OMV.
So far I'm very pleased, everything seems to work fine.
The Hardware is:
120GB SSD for the OS
5x 500GB HDD in RAID6
Eventhough I'm quite pleased with a idle power-draw of just 40W, I want to save more Power as the Server isn't needed that much.
So I configurated everything for Wake on LAN and AutoShutDown.
From my Router Fritz.box 7590 I can easiely Wake the Server from Standy-by and even Shutdown by pressing the related Button on the Fritzbox Webinterface. So magic package seems to work.
But I want the Server to start automaticly every time I start one of my PCs. Both Win10, one education, the other Pro.
As far as I've read till now, there is no way to send the magic package natively from Windows, is that right?
This would be my prefered Sollution as I like my System to be slim.
So I guess will need additional Software? Any recommendations?
I've read about mhsoft Start on LAN, but can it start the server automaticly after I launched windows? or do I need to press any Button?
I don't want to install a dozen programms just to find out which can do the task.
Best Regards, Christian
