Overview

The following error message is received when launching the NCM tool:

The SolarWinds NCM software was unable to get data from SQL server:
[
Cannot open database "pm" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login Failed for user "sa".
]

Environment

NCM 7.2.2 and earlier

Cause 

This issue is caused by running the Orion Configuration Wizard and creating a new database instead of connecting to the existing DB. This broke the NPM / NCM integration.

Resolution

  1. Run NCM Configuration Wizard.
    1. Go to Start > SolarWinds Orion > Network Configuration Manager > SolarWinds NCM Configuration Wizard.
    2. Verify the settings.
    3. Complete the wizard.
  2. Run Orion Configuration Wizard.
