Configure a remote NTA Flow Storage Database

Updated June 7th, 2016 

NTA Flow Storage Database recommendations

  • Make sure you save your flow data on a dedicated disk.
  • The NTA Flow Storage Database folder must be empty or contain the appropriate NTA Flow Storage Database version.
  • The folder path must be a valid URI, and SolarWinds NTA must be able to create a folder there.
  • Make sure your NTA Flow Storage Database and its backups are stored in different folders.
  • Specifying the folder for storing backups is not required. You can define it later.

Specify the NTA Flow Storage Database destination

  1. If the Configuration Wizard does not start automatically, start the Configuration Wizard in the Orion Configuration and Auto-Discovery folder.
  2. Enter an absolute path to the location for storing your flow data into the NTA Flow Storage Database Data File Path field or click Browse to navigate to the appropriate location.
    • The path should contain only ASCII characters.
    • The defined folder should be located on a dedicated local NTFS drive, not on the system drive.
  3. Enter an absolute path for storing your backups into the Backup NTA Flow Storage Database Data File Path field or click Browse to navigate to the appropriate location.
  4. Click OK.
