Sometimes it is necessary to recreate the Solarwinds-Orion Certificate, it may become corrupted, or some servers may have the incorrect certificate.


  • Any version of NPM and Modules.



To Recreate the Solarwinds-Orion Certificate do the steps below,

  1. Run mmc (e.g. from the Start menu)
  2. File menu > Add/Remove Snap-in
  3. Select "Certificates" in left pane and then click Add
  4. Select "Computer Account" (for LocalMachine) then click Next, and then Finish
  5. Select the Solarwinds-Orion certificate and export it and the private key just in case you need it, after that delete the Solarwinds-Orion certificate. I would not recommend removing any other Cerfiticate as it can cause issues.
  6. Run the configuration wizard selecting only services, and run through and it will recreate the Solarwinds-Orion certificate.
