    This is a quick little utility I put together based on a code snippet I found on the Net.

    This script queries LDAP for workstations that are members of specified groups. The script then uses the "zenwmMACAddress" attribute of workstation objects to send a Wake on LAN packet to eachworkstation.

    I use this script to power on all of the workstations locatedin our library each morning.

    To use this script you will need Perl and the Net::LDAP module then,just customize the script to fit your environment.

    The following four changes are absolutely necessary:

    1. Edit the first line to reflect your path to Perl.
    2. Place the full DN to each workstation group you wish to wake in the"wakeup_groups" array. (notice the lack of a trailing comma on the lastgroup in the array)
    3. Edit the search_base variable to reflect your tree's organization.
    4. Edit "ldapservername" to reflect the name of your LDAP server.

    Any other changes you may need to make should be self-explanatory by using the comments in the script.
