Unable to view reports with custom fields on additional web server

Updated April 17, 2017

Overview

Reports with custom fields cannot be viewed on the additional web server but can be viewed on the primary web server. The following errors are displayed:

System.ApplicationException: Field not specified or invalid at SolarWinds.Orion.Web.Reporting.C1QueryWrapper.BuildSQL() at SolarWinds.Orion.Web.Reporting.OrionReport.BuildQuery(String orderBy, Streing grouping, String filter) at SolarWinds.Orion.Web.Reporting.ReportRunner.WorkerProc(Object state)

 

OR

 

SolarWinds.Orion.Web.InformationService.InformationServiceProxy - Entity IPAM.GroupNodeAttr does not contain requested property  <Custom Field Name>

 

OR

 

SolarWinds.Orion.Web.Reporting.ReportCellPreviewControl+<>c__DisplayClassb - Error setting up report cell during rendering '.'
SolarWinds.Orion.Core.Reporting.Exceptions.ExecutionFailedException: Entity IPAM.GroupNodeAttr does not contain requested property <Custom Field Name>

Environment

IPAM 4.3.2 and earlier

Cause 

When adding custom fields to IPAM, the C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\Information Service\3.0\Schemas\IPAM.Attributes.xml file in the primary web server is not synchronized with the file in the additional web server.

Resolution

Note: The following instructions assume that IPAM is installed in the default location. Change the paths if you installed IPAM in another location.

  1. On the additional web server, back up C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\Information Service\3.0\Schemas\IPAM.Attributes.xml. Verify that the backup is saved in a location outside the Orion installation folder C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\.
  2. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\Information Service\3.0\Schemas\ in the main polling engine.
  3. Copy the IPAM.Attributes.xml file and replace the file in C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\Information Service\3.0\Schemas\ of the additional polling engine.

Repeat this procedure whenever a new custom field is added.
