Cannot WOL with Intel NUC8i7BEK after shutting down ESXi 6.7U1

I have similar, if not identical issue described here:

https://intel-openport-v8.hosted.jivesoftware.com/thread/146358

 

I also have NUC8iBEK, with ESXi6.7U1 installed. Basically, if I switch off the power (at the socket) and switch it on again, Intel NUC will wake up with WOL / Magic Packet sent to the mac address of the network interface. ESXi will start up as expected.

 

But if I "Shut Down" from ESXi GUI.. the network switch seems to show the port/interface as "up", even though NUC box have powered down. WOL/Magic packet does not wake it up no matter how many times I tried, until I switch off the power completely off and then on again.

 

I have followed the suggestion to update to BIOS version 0056, but that did not help.

 

Anyone else having this issue?

It did not help unfortunately. Note that I have a 2nd generation NUC as well with the same ESXi software installed. When I do a shutdown on that old NUC.. it seems to shut down the network interface correctly. I can wake up that one without any issue.

 

regarding the link you provided, the bios setting is already set correctly by default

AWong29, Thank you very much for letting us know that information. Just to confirm, this problem with this NUC, is it recently, was it working fine before? Did you make any recent hardware/software changes? We will do further research on this matter, in order for us to be able to do that, please provide the SSU report and the model of the input/output components you might have connected to the NUC: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/91600/Intel-System-Support-Utility To attach the file, once you choose "reply" select the "clip" icon on the lower left corner.

This has never worked on my new NUC8i5BEK. I’ve only just installed ESXi on it.

 

As mentioned, my old 4th gen (not 2nd gen.. sorry) NUC (model: BOXD54250WYKH) works fine, and is still able to wake up properly after shutting down ESXi.

 

I am not running Windows or Linux on the box itself, so I can’t see how I could run that System Support Utility. Do you absolutely need this? Can I run this from a virtual machine on ESXi?

 

The NUC box is connected to a Mikrotik RB850Gx2 router.. info on the router can be found here:

Hello AWong29, Can you confirm which Intel® NUC model you have? Here is the link to the Bean Canyon models: https://ark.intel.com/products/codename/126382/BEAN-CANYON?q=bean%20canyon You can also provide us just the SA # on the back of the unit to confirm the model.

I am also experiencing the same issue with my NUCi8BEH running the same version of ESXi (6.7U1). Magic packets will not wake the NUC if shutdown was initiated from ESXi. WOL works only after shutdown via the power button or by unplugging the power cable.

 

Using the latest BIOS BECFL357.86A

Hi all, We have reproduced this issue but have not been able to find a work around. We have reported the behavior to engineering and they are investigating. We will update this thread when we have information to share. Regards, Ken Intel Customer Support

Hi all, The NE1000 driver incorporated in the VMWare product is created by VMWare, based on a reference driver from Intel. You will need to work with VMWare support to troubleshoot the issue, as any update to the driver will need to come from their engineering team. Regards, Ken Intel Customer Support
