WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

High Availability constantly disables Orion services

Updated May 17, 2017

Overview

When High Availability (HA) is turned on, it constantly sets the Orion service to Disabled state. When the Orion service is set to Manual or Automatic in services.msc, it reverts to Disabled status.

Environment

  • NPM 12.0 SR1
  • NCM 7.5.1
  • High Availability v2016

Cause 

The following stack trace in the HighAvailability.Service.log file indicates a depreciating service in the SolarWinds Orion NCM Caching Service:

2017-05-11 21:25:35,994 [23] ERROR SolarWinds.Orion.HighAvailability.Resources.BaseOrionEngineResource - OrionEngineResource resource stop failed.

System.AggregateException: One or more errors occurred. ---> System.InvalidOperationException: Service SolarWinds Orion NCM Caching Service was not found on computer '.'. ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The specified service does not exist as an installed service

Resolution

Do any of the following to resolve the issue:

  • Run sc delete to remove the service.
  • Add the service to the High Availability blacklist (C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\HighAvailability\Plugins\Blacklists\OrionMainPoller.xml).
