I recently set up OMV 5 on an AMD system (A75m-itx motherboard). It connects through the onboard Gbit capable NIC. Its an RTL8111E. I have the autoshutdown plugin installed and suspend after set time works.
However I don't know how to wake up the system once it goes into suspend. Since the machine has suspended, I don't see it having an IP address (from my routers list of connected clients). Also it does not advertise any network drives on the routers network.
At first I thought I was doing something wrong in my BIOS setting or my motherboard did not support or some error on my end. But after endlessly looking on the web, I came across this wiki article, which pointed me to a wol application. This application wakes up my OMV system from suspend. So clearly this application sends some "magic packet" which wakes up the system.
Question to the community: How do you wake up your NAS systems once the machine is suspended?
My use case is that I have 5 clients connecting to the SMB share on the network. One is a Ubuntu desktop, W10 laptop, Kodi running on a RPI, one android phone, one iphone.
The phones connect to the SMB share primarily to dump pics on to the SMB share. While I certainly want to suspend the system when not in use, I don't want to always use a command line application to wake up my system and then access the shared drive. Any insights on how to best to wol the system?
