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.

Overview

 

If a proxy server has been enabled on your Orion server, Orion Virtualization Monitor will attempt to use it to connect to VMware vCenter, and these connection attempts may not succeed. The following procedure disables the proxy server, so Orion Virtualization Monitor will not use it when polling vCenters.

Environment

Orion NPM version 10.1 and higher.

Steps

To configure Orion Virtualization Monitor to not use any existing default proxy server:

  1. Log on to your Orion server using an account with administrative privileges.
  2. In a text editor, open the SolarWinds.VIM.VMware.Jobs.dll.config, SolarWinds.VIM.BusinessLayer.dll.config and the SolarWinds.VIM.Collector.dll.config configuration files, located, by default, in C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\VIM\.
  3. If you are configuring an Orion NPM 10.1.X installation, add the following code, within the <configuration></configuration> tags and after the <log4net></log4net> section:
        <system.net>
        <!--Specifies whether a web proxy is used. The default value is true.-->
        <defaultProxy enabled="false" />
      </system.net>
  4. If you are configuring an installation of Orion NPM 10.2 or higher, within the <configuration></configuration> tags and after <log4net></log4net> the section add:
    <system.net>
        <!--Specifies whether a web proxy is used. The default value is true.-->
        <defaultProxy enabled="false" />
      </system.net>
  5. Save the SolarWinds.VIM.VMware.Jobs.dll.config, SolarWinds.VIM.BusinessLayer.dll.config and the SolarWinds.VIM.Collector.dll.config configuration files.
  6. Click Start > Administrative Tools > Services.
  7. Right-click SolarWinds Job Engine v2, and then click Restart.
