Overview

In some cases, FOE is not needed on the APE's. As long as primary server fails over, you may continue with the polling push-off that happens to APE elements when the APE is down and primary server takes over polling for a time.

Environment

Orion with FOE 6.4 or 6.7

Detail

  • Does not have to be connected to internet to uninstall.
  • You just turn off the secondary FOE servers, after disabling the SolarWinds FOE services on the main. Then the secondary is done.
  • The secondary retains any OS settings that FOE is using. SolarWinds recommends to format and install a new image on those machines for simplicity. Take note that FOE just needed thse settings in place, it never controlled them.
  • You can remove FOE in the Control Panel > Programs and Features like any other software installed in Windows.
