In the final step of the installation process, the system establishes a connection between the Orion application server and the Orion database, configures the database, and configures the application.

If you are installing a SolarWinds product into an existing Orion Platform deployment, configuring the Orion server database is not required.

Before you begin

  • Confirm that the IIS Manager is not open while the Configuration Wizard is running.
  • Close all web browsers.

Configure the Orion server and database

  1. If the Configuration Wizard does not load automatically, start the Configuration Wizard in the SolarWinds Orion > Configuration and Auto-Discovery program folder.
  2. On the Welcome dialog box, click Next.
  3. If prompted to stop services, click Yes.
  4. On the Database Settings dialog box, select an SQL Server and authentication method, and click Next.

    Use SQL Server Authentication to ensure the SolarWinds Orion server can always access SQL Server, even when hosted remotely on a separate server.

  5. On the Database Settings dialog box, click Create a new database or select an existing database, and click Next.

    Only use alphanumeric characters in database names.

  6. On the Database Account dialog box, create a new account or use an existing account that the polling engine and Web Console use to access the database, and click Next.
  7. On the Website Settings dialog box:
    1. Select All Unassigned unless your environment requires a specific IP address for the Orion Web Console.
    2. Specify the Port and the Website Root Directory where the system will install the web console files.

      If you specify any port other than 80, include that port in the URL used to access the Web Console.

    3. To use this function, click Yes - Enable automatic login using Windows Authentication.

  10. Click Yes if prompted to disable the SNMP Trap Service and enable the SolarWinds Trap Service.
  11. On the Completing the Orion Configuration Wizard dialog box, click Next.
  12. When completed, click Finish to launch the Orion Web Console.
