New in version 2.2.
The wakeonlan module sends magic Wake-on-LAN (WoL) broadcast packets.
Network broadcast address to use for broadcasting magic Wake-on-LAN packet
MAC address to send Wake-on-LAN broadcast packet for
UDP port to use for magic Wake-on-LAN packet
# Send a magic Wake-on-LAN packet to 00:00:5E:00:53:66 - local_action: wakeonlan mac=00:00:5E:00:53:66 broadcast=192.0.2.23 - wakeonlan: mac=00:00:5E:00:53:66 port=9 delegate_to: localhost
This module sends a magic packet, without knowing whether it worked
Only works if the target system was properly configured for Wake-on-LAN (in the BIOS and/or the OS)
Some BIOSes have a different (configurable) Wake-on-LAN boot order (i.e. PXE first) when turned off
