Overview

Orion maps, created using SolarWinds Network Atlas, are not directly compatible with EOC and require to be imported. EOC 1.5 further requires a converter application to be used above and beyond the normal map importer application.

Environment

EOC 1.5.x

Resolution

Download the Orion to EOC Map Converter. This utility imports maps into Orion EOC v1.5 from other SolarWinds Orion products.

Prerequisites

  • Orion EOC must currently be managing at least one SolarWinds Orion server.
  • If Orion EOC is configured to use Active Directory accounts to access Orion servers, make sure to enter the password for the AD account in the Orion Logins section of EOC. Also, only AD accounts that were individually added to the Orion Server can be used to import a map. Active Directory group accounts are not compatible with Map Converter.
  • The user running this utility must:
    1. run Map Converter using a Windows Administrator account that also has Orion EOC Administrator role permissions.
    2. log into Map Converter using an Orion EOC account that was individually added to Orion EOC. Active Directory group accounts are not compatible with Map Converter.
    3. have Orion EOC access to at least one SolarWinds Orion server
    4. have Node Management rights on the remote Orion server

Importing Maps Into Orion EOC

  1. Log on to the Orion EOC server with a Windows Administrator account that also has Orion EOC Administrator role permissions.
  2. If using Windows Server 2008, right-click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds > Convert Orion maps to EOC and click Run as Administrator.
  3. If using Windows Server 2003, click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds > Convert Orion maps to EOC.
  4. Select the Orion server hosting your maps from the Orion list.
  5. Select the check boxes next to the maps you want to import into Orion EOC.
  6. If you want to edit the Orion EOC names of the maps you are importing, click the map name in the New Name column and then edit the name.
  7. Click Import.

 

Troubleshooting

Maps you import from different Orion servers may share the same name. You must rename these maps so that each has a unique name in Orion EOC. The child/parent relationships regarding any renamed map will break, and you must manually correct this after importing.

  • Windows 2008 customers may encounter problems either after manually clicking the Refresh button, or after selecting a different Orion server. If the utility crashes, restart it and resume importing.
  • If using an operating system such as Windows Server 2008 that has UAC, you must run the program using Run as Administrator.
