Overview

This article provides steps to move NTA and NPM on a clean platform. 

Environment

  • All NPM versions
  • All NTA versions

Steps

1. Go to Orion Database Manager.
2. Add a Default Server.
3. Expand the Orion Database.
4. Query the Websitestable and take note of the WebsiteID.
   Note: Delete entries that are no longer valid.
5. Query the AllEngines table and take note of the EngineID.
   Note: Delete entries that are no longer valid.
6. Query the Alerts table and replace the EngineID with the EngineID number on AllEngines table (to match).

    For example, your EngineID on AllEngines is 2, then on the Alerts table: Update alerts set engineid=2.

7. Query the EngineProperties table and delete any entries that do not match your EngineID from the AllEngines      table.
8. Query the Events table and replace the EngineID with the EngineID number on AllEngines table (to match).

    For example, your EngineID on AllEngines is 2, then on the Alerts table: Update alerts set engineid=2.
   Note: DO NOT replace the entries with NULL values.
9. Query the FlowEngines table and delete any entry that that do not match your ServerName.
10. Query the NodesData table and replace the EngineID with the EngineID number on AllEngines table (to        

      match).
11. Query the ReportJobs table and replace the WebsiteID to match your WebsiteID from the Websites table.
12. Query the ReportJobUrls and replace the server name on the URL to show your server name (if different).
13. Query the SysLog table and replace the EngineID with the EngineID number on AllEngines table (to match).
14. Query the Traps table and replace the EngineID with the EngineID number on AllEngines table (to match).

 

Notes:

  • Assuming that you have NPM 10.2 and NTA is earlier than 4.0 and do not have your IPAM version, doing a clean install will have to be as follows:

    1. At this time you should have 3 servers in use: 1. SQL, 2. NTA Storage and 3. NPM+IPAM+NTA.
    2. Locate the SQL Server. If it is on the same server as your Orion products it needs to be moved to a separate server. (
    3. On a clean system (Windows Server 2012) install the same software versions that you currently have.
    4. Use the SolarWinds Product Upgrade Advisor to get the upgrade path.
    5. Follow the upgrade path.

Do any install\upgrade with the LOCAL Administrator account (NOT a Domain Admin account) to avoid and permissions issues.

 

  • SQL is out of our supported products.
  • Login to the systems using the LOCAL Administrator account (for install/upgrades) to avoid GPOs and any other permission issues.
