Resolution

Resolution when installing or upgrading the Main Server

  1. Provide internet access to this address https://downloads.solarwinds.com/

and re-run the installer

  1. Download the installer again
  2. If problems still occur, please enter a helpdesk ticket.  

Resolution when installing or upgrading scalability engines (Additional Poller, Additional Web Server, etc.)

In the case of scalability engines, there are three possible causes for the issue.

  • The Orion Installer was run on an existing scalability engine before the Main Server was updated to at least Orion Platform 2017.3 MSP3.
    Resolution: Update the Main Server to at least Orion Platform 2017.3 MSP3, and then rerun the installer on the scalability engines.
  • There is no connection between the scalability engine and the Main Server.
    Resolution: Ensure that there is a good connection between the scalability engine and the Main Server.
  • Time settings are not synced between the scalability engine and the main server. Even a couple of seconds difference prevents data from being sent between the servers. Multiple time zones are not supported.
    Resolution: Ensure time zones and clocks on each server are synchronized.
