Wake on LAN VbScript / HTA help Friday, January 03, 2014 12:58 AM (permalink)
I have created the following HTML page to run on a Windows 2008 R2 server running IIS 7.5. The vbScript uses a SQL query to get the IP address and MAC address from System Center and then should run edmwake.exe (a wake on lan application). I am used to writing client side vbscript but I am struggling to get this to run on the server using HTA/HTML. The edmwake.exe is on the server, however it does not run. The document.writes output all the way to just before the objShell command. I have been researching for hours but can't see what it wrong.
Is anyone able to offer any advice?
Thank you :-)

    edmwake.exe is the old Novadigm Radia module for WOL, and nvdkit.exe is the newer module I use for WOL. I have vbscript executing inside a tclhttpd web server to accomplish the same task from a web page. Sorry I don't use IIS or ASP but I do use TCL and TSP to accpmplish the same thing. You can see it on youtube be searching  
    "Remote Wake-On-Lan, WMI Inventory and Shutdown". I have many videos showing various features of the utility.
     I have over 80 vbscripts running inside the tclhttpd server to automate all kinds of things server side. I also use psexec to deploy scripts.  Here is a complete description of the utility.
    Doge is a Windows based management utility designed to automate routine admin tasks and troubleshoot remote systems from a central web-based console. It was developed specifically for Radia administration where hundreds of Windows Satellite/Proxy servers and thousands of Windows clients may need a repetitive admin task performed like stopping/starting services, collecting system information, verifying/deleting a file, remote shutdown/WOL, and executing scripts.
      The tclhttpd serves up web content where users navigate/select the desired method, enter system credentials and pass variables to the back-end scripts via a pre-configured Access database. Using a text file with a list of systems as input the scripts can be configured and executed sequentially on all remote systems in the list as well as local and single system methods from any web browser enabled device. The output is sent to either excel or the internal Access database. The back-end consists of basic Windows scripts that are widely used including batch, vbscript, psexec for remote file execution and nvdkit.exe for Wake-on-LAN. 

    Doge runs on the same tclhttpd framework as a standard Radia Integration Server and uses the same interpreter so the TCL server pages(tsp) are interchangeable. The TCL server pages are setup to interact with an internal Access database to store user input/script output, execute vbscript, and a database front-end for reporting.
