Overview

When you are installing NCM 7.5, the configuration wizard only shows one service to configure: "Orion Improvement Program." The installation does not complete.

Even after you re-launch the Configuration Wizard, it still tries to configure the Orion Improvement Program.

Environment

  • NCM version 7.5

Cause 

The Orion Improvement Program was somehow corrupted.

2016-06-21 14:39:21,751 [1] ERROR CwMetricMonitor - Error while saving metrics result into file.
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at SolarWinds.ConfigurationWizard.Common.CwMetricMonitor.InsertMetricsIntoFile(CwMetrics metrics, Boolean savedToDb)
2016-06-21 14:39:21,751 [1] ERROR CwMetricMonitor - Cannot run OrionImprovement. System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at SolarWinds.ConfigurationWizard.Common.CwMetricMonitor.InsertMetricsIntoFile(CwMetrics metrics, Boolean savedToDb)
   at SolarWinds.ConfigurationWizard.Common.CwMetricMonitor.CollectCwMetrics()
   at SolarWinds.ConfigurationWizard.Common.CwMetricMonitor.StartUploadMetrics()

 

Another way to determine if this problem exists is to see if any of these files are missing:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SolarWinds\Collector\Plugins\NCM.Job.Creator.plugin
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SolarWinds\Collector\Plugins\NCM.Job.plugin

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SolarWinds\Collector\Plugins\NCM.SubJob.Creator.plugin
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SolarWinds\Collector\Plugins\NCM.SubJob.Transfer.plugin

Resolution

  1. Uninstall the Orion Improvement Program from the Control Panel.
  2. Re-run the Configuration Wizard to finish the NCM 7.5 installation.
