This article describes what to do when the Failover Engine services does not stay started on any Orion server with FOE.


  • FOE 6.4
  • FOE 6.7


The FOE license is outdated.


  1. Open License Manager at Start > All Programs > SolarWinds and see if the Failover Engine license is out of date.
  2. If it is, log into your Customer Portal and acquire the new license to activate/upgrade the existing FOE installation.
