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
