Computer is not on

The 'Computer is not on' error usually occurs when Right Click Tools is not able to ping the computer before running an action. By default, Right Click Tools attempts to ping a computer, and verify that it's online, before running an action. Running an action against a computer that is not on, and may take some time before erroring out, can slow down actions against large groups of computers.

Troubleshooting Steps

  • Check information on how to configure your environment for ICMP Echo (Ping).
  • Configure Right Click Tools to disable this behavior.
