If you install or make changes to the Orion platform website, the Configuration Wizard reboots your IIS server, shutting down all SolarWinds products on the server during the configuration operation. Any websites hosted by the server are stopped and restarted during this process.

  1. Launch the SolarWinds Configuration Wizard.
  2. Specify the appropriate SQL Server instance and authentication method, and click Next.
    • The SQL Server instance must support SQL authentication or mixed mode.
    • If you are using a local instance of SQL Server Express, use the following syntax to use the default instance: (local)\SQLEXPRESS.
    • If you select SQL Authentication, provide an account with sufficient rights to create new databases on the server instance. For example, specify the SQL administrator account: SA.
  3. Select the appropriate Orion platform, and click Next.
  4. Create a new database account and password or select an existing account on the database server. You must supply a strong password. For more information about strong passwords, see the Microsoft website.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Review the services to install, and click Next.
  7. Review the configuration to change, and click Next.
  8. Review the Configuration Summary, and click Finish.
