Environment

All versions of Network Atlas

Cause 

  1. This issue is caused by Custom Property metadata existing while property is not created for specific objects (i.e. nodes).
  2. This can also be caused if you have NW Atlas installed on your workstation and it is not the correct version as the server.

Resolution

This issue is caused by Custom Property metadata existing while property is not created for specific objects (i.e. nodes).

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console.
  2. Go to Settings > Manage Custom Properties.
  3. Find the property, select it and click Delete.
  4. Re-open Network Atlas.

 

This can also be caused if you have NW Atlas installed on your workstation and it is not the correct version as the server.

  1. Log onto server and make sure that you are able to see Orion objects on the left
  2. Check the version number of NW Atlas and compare that to the workstation version
  3. If not correct copy the installer file of NW Atlas from C:\programdata\Solarwinds\Installer and run the program on the workstation.
  4. After the check to see if the Orion Objects are there
