wake-on-lan on ESX

hello

I have installed ESX and ESXi on bl465c G6 blade servers

and I have an issue

WOL is set as not supported on vcenter (see attached image) but WOL is supported on those servers

ESX and ESXi has installed the broadcom netxtreme II BCM5706s 1000Base-sx driver

those servers can be started when using magic packet utility so wol works

but when I want to put a server in standby from vcenter I have an error

cofirm that ipmi/ilo is configured or configure vcenter to use wake-on-lan standby is stopped

if I configure ilo it works but I want to use wake on lan

there is no way to validate wake on lan on vcenter

wol is set on the bios

can someone help me?
