    Hi, I have server SCCM connected to VLAN on Brocade VCS. I need send WOL magic packets to others subnetworks outside VCS. How to I can do it safety on VCS?
    I've read that may use command: ip directed-broadcast, haw use this command on VCS?
    Regards
    Marek

    The VDX uses Ethernet Primitives in order to discover connections between each switch in a VCS fabric. The primitive sequences used by VDX were interfering with the device waking up.
    The primitives can be turned off in the interface configuration as shown below - allowing the Wake on LAN to work: !
    interface TenGigabitEthernet 1/0/1
    no fabric isl enable
    no fabric trunk enable
    fabric neighbor-discovery disable

    no shutdown
