Add a SolarWinds Site to EOC

Updated: August 30, 2018

SolarWinds EOC can display information from any SolarWinds Site that runs on a supported version of the Orion Platform. After a site is added to EOC, you can specify which sites a user account can access. EOC can monitor sites that meet the following criteria:

  • The SolarWinds Site must run on Orion Platform 2016.1 or later.
    To determine the Orion Platform version, scroll to the bottom of the Orion Web Console window. All installed products are listed at the bottom of the window.

  • The UTC system time of the SolarWinds server must be within five minutes of the SolarWinds EOC server. For security reasons, SolarWinds EOC cannot communicate with SolarWinds servers that have a greater time difference.

Add a site to monitor in EOC

  1. Log in to EOC as an administrator.
  2. Choose Settings > All Settings.
  3. Under Getting Started with Orion, click Manage SolarWinds Sites.
  4. Click Add SolarWinds Site.
  5. Enter the IP address or host name of the SolarWinds server to monitor.
    • SolarWinds EOC only supports SolarWinds servers with IPv4 addresses.
    • SolarWinds EOC only recognizes host names that follow standard DNS naming conventions, which require that host names be composed of alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9), the minus sign (-), periods (.), and underscore characters (_).
  6. Enter the URL of the SolarWinds Site's web console.
  7. Enter a user name and password with administrative access to the SolarWinds Site you want to monitor.

    SolarWinds EOC uses these credentials to connect to the SolarWinds Site and access data.

  8. Click Test Connection. If the test fails, correct the error and click Test Connection again.

    You cannot continue to the next panel unless the connection succeeds.

  9. Click Next.
  10. Enter a display name for the SolarWinds Site, and click Next.
  11. (Optional) Specify a default user account to give EOC users access to information from this SolarWinds Site.
    1. Select Specify a default user account.
    2. Enter the user name and password of an account with access to the SolarWinds Site.
      The permissions granted to this account determine what data is available to EOC users.
    3. Click Test Connection. If the test fails, correct the error and click Test Connection again.

      You cannot add the site unless the connection succeeds.

  12. Click Add Site.

Information from the added SolarWinds Site is now available in EOC.

If a SolarWinds Site is pointed to a different database after the site was added to EOC, EOC stops displaying data from that site. To correct this issue, choose Manage SolarWinds Sites and edit the site definition. After you click through each panel and then click Finish, EOC displays information from that site again.
