WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Issue:

This article applies NTA 4.2 and earlier. NTA 4.4 and later versions use a SQL Server database to store flow data. For more information, see Databases used by SolarWinds modules.

 

The main Orion server is unable to connect to the NTA flow storage database server with the following error:

ERROR Solarwinds.Netflow.FastBit.Server.Service.Program - NetFlowService will abnormally terminated - UnhandledException was caught : System.AccessViolationException

Cause:

The main Orion server's inability to connect to the NTA flow storage database indicates that files are corrupted.  Consequently, the files could not connect to Fastbit Studio utlity.

Resolution:

Part 1. Stop NTA's flow storage database (FSDB) service.

     Note: In NTA 4.X architecture, there are two types of deployment, which has two two different ways to stop/restart the NTA service: 

     Single Server
  1. Open Orion Service Manager.
  2. Stop/Start NTA Netflow service (this action will restart the NetFlow storage service).
     Separate Server
  1. Login to FSDB server (separate machine).
  2. Click Start > Run CMD.exe (Command Shell or Windows PowerShell) > Type services.msc.
  3. Right-click the NetFlow Storage Service > Stop/Start Netflow Storage service. 
Part 2. Delete the following data by reconnecting to the service directly through SolarWinds fastbit studio:

        1. All partitions for the NTA Flow Storage Database past the retention period.
        2. All data in the toBeDeleted folder, which are kept in the NTA Flow Storage database.
        3. The partTN_map file. 

Part 3. Restart the SolarWinds NetFlow Service (follow the same procedures on 'Step 1'). 

The server is now connected to the NetFlow storage database. 

Applies to: NTA v4.2 and earlier
