Cause 

This issue occurs when the Remote Name is not the same as the Server Name in the Website's table of the Orion Database.

 

For example:

C:\ProgramData\Solarwinds\Logs\Orion    OrionWeb.log

 

2016-02-11 11:07:43,199 [50] ERROR ASP.orion_exporttopdf_aspx - The web request to https://SolarWinds-Orion/Orion/image...arget_70x8.png returned with an exception The remote name could not be resolved: 'solarwinds-orion'

2016-02-11 11:07:47,090 [50] ERROR ASP.orion_exporttopdf_aspx - The web request to https://SolarWinds-Orion/orion/js/jq...e0e0;%23cccccc; returned with an exception The remote name could not be resolved: 'solarwinds-orion'

 

 

Resolution

You need to add the Remote name and IP address to the Hosts file of the Orion Server.

Host file location: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

Remote name is the name from the OrionWeb.log

IP address is the IP of the Orion server

 

For example:

solarwinds-orion 10.1.1.1

 

After check and the errors should not be in the OrionWeb.log and report should export correctly in PDF format
