This article provides steps to install the client for FSM when it has a database connection failure. 


FSM version 6.6.5


If the client was previously installed, uninstall the client or server from Programs and Features.


If the issue still persists:

  1. Stop the Firebird service. 
  2. Delete the service from the Program Files/SolarWinds directory.
    Note: Check if other SolarWinds products are installed. This will clear out all the configurations for FSM. 
  3. Re-run the Client installer.
