This version of SolarWinds NPM includes the following known issues:
|Active Directory||The Email a Web Page alert action does not function as designed for users who are logged in to the web console using an Active Directory account or group. This is a known issue that may be addressed in a future release.|
|Alerts||If you are using an Active Directory account for authentication into the web console, you may experience a session timeout when attempting to execute an Email a web page alert action. |
To resolve this issue, wait for the session timeout to expire (this may take upwards of 20 minutes), and then restart the Alerting Engine service.
|Charts||On upgrade to the new format, old format charts with the setting Time period for Chart set to Last 2 Hours may have the configured time period changed. |
To resolve this issue, reconfigure the Time period for Chart setting to Last 2 Hours for all affected charts.
|ESX Monitoring||When adding or updating an ESX server as a monitored node, you may need to refresh the view before successfully changing the provided IP address.|
|FIPS||SolarWinds installations on Windows server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 require a Microsoft hotfix to realize the FIPS-compatibility features of SolarWinds products. For more information about this required Microsoft hotfix, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981119.|
|Network Atlas||Under certain specific conditions, Network Atlas may fail to complete file synchronization with the SolarWinds database. This failure has been linked to Network Atlas users who have insufficient permissions to access the Network Atlas synchronization folder. Confirm that the user logged in to Network Atlas is able to access the Network Atlas synchronization folder.|
|Nodes||Non-Cisco nodes may not display operating system versions in Node Details resources.|
|SolarWinds Toolset Integration||The SolarWinds Toolset Integration for the Orion Web Console is unable to install automatically on Windows Server 2008 R2 due to an Internet Explorer version 8 (IE8) security feature. As a result, whenever the web console opens a view containing resources that can use the Toolset integration, a warning dialog displays. If you want to install the Toolset integration, click More Options, and then click Always Install. If you do not want to install the Toolset integration, click More Options, and then click Never Install.|
