Wake up clients for backup on request. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a network with 4 XP professional computers connected to the server, and the server is able to wake up these computers from standby mode for automatic backup at any time. After the backup is completed they go back to standby.

    It would be nice if I could request a manual backup for any computer in standby mode from a client and get the server to wake up the requested computer and run the backup.

    Now I get "Computer 'NAME' can not be contacted. Make sure it is on and connected to the network"

    Since this works for AUTOMATIC backups, I think it would be fairly simple for MS to add this functionality.
