Is that an end user machine?

Yes the End User machine. I need this to be switched on every Saturday at 3am for example and make a backup then shutdown. I know the shutdown feature is ok as the Veeam software can do this.

Its just getting the PC to switch on and back up.

Thanks everyone for the help here :D

Thanks! Thinking of a possible solution: you could use log on/log off backup events to create a backups based on user activates.

If you are OK with performing backups each time the user logs off then please check this article. You'll need to select "At the following events" - "Log Off"

If you want to utilize wake-on-LAN feature, then you need to:

1. Have it enabled in your BIOS
2. Make sure that your NIC driver is up to date
3. Follow this article

Thank you.

You really are making life difficult for yourself....

Look in the BIOS for Auto on Time or words to that effect. On a Dell system it is under power management and select the days you want the system to power on and the time.
Set V-EP to power off after backup. I now have 5 systems doing this, all reporting back into B&R console, one of them is even using a remote repository on their end of the WAN via the local server set up as a backup proxy.

Different computers have different BIOS but if its supported on a hardware level it sounds like a perfect idea.

The wake on Lan feature is turned on, on the network card and is plugged in VIA Ethernet. And the setting in the BIOS has been set up. But for some reason a backup hasn't been done today as the PC was off. And I understood that the PC would wake up to do this?


If you have general problems with WOL read this post on my blog:
