  2. Open Database Manager (Start > All Programs > Solarwinds Orion > Advanced Features > Database Manager).

  3. Add Orion SQL Server as Default Server if not done already.

  4. Expand your Database.

  5. Run the following SQL statement:

    update [dbo].[ActionDefinitions]
    set Target = CAST(REPLACE(CAST(Target as NVarchar(MAX)),'SMTPServer:IP_OF_OLD_SMTP_SERVER','SMTPServer:IP_OF_NEW_SMTP_SERVER') AS NText)
    where CAST(Target AS nvarchar(max)) like '%SMTPServer:IP_OF_OLD_SMTP_SERVER%';
