Search not working in NCM 7.4 because "Indexing in progress 0% complete".

To verify that the steps in this article apply to you

  1. Open the log adjuster tool: click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Documentation and Support > Log Adjuster.
  2. Set the NCM Business Layer to Debug and select Apply.
  3. Click Settings > NCM settings > Seach Settings and disable and then enable the Search.
  4. Go to C:\ProgramData\Solarwinds\Logs\Orion\NCM and open NcmBusinesslayerPlugin.log and look for the DEBUG messages below:


276 [3] DEBUG SolarWinds.NCM.FTS.Search.ConfigChangeNotificationProvider - NCMSearch: Listen Tick - Delay:100 ScanPeriod:60000

276 [3] DEBUG SolarWinds.Orion.Common.SqlHelper - SQL: SELECT OptionValue
FROM NCM_Options

WHERE OptionName=@optionName (@optionName=NCMConfigIndexStatus)

280 [3] DEBUG SolarWinds.NCM.FTS.Search.ConfigChangeNotificationProvider - NCMSearch: Listen Tick: - Nodes are not synchronized. Skip listen


If you see "Nodes are not synchronized. Skip listen" then follow the steps below.


  • NCM 7.4.x




The issue is caused because the NPM and NCM Nodes are not synchronized.


  1. Go to the Orion database and run the following query:

update WebSettings set SettingValue=(select OptionValue from NCM_Options where OptionName='NCM.NodesSyncID71')
where SettingName='NCM.NodesSyncID71'

  2. After a few minutes of running the query, click Settings > NCM settings >Seach Settings and disable and then enable the Search.

  3. The indexing should start progressing and when it is finished you can search the NCM configs.
