To check the error:

  1. Download sysinternals - Procmon.
  2. Use the Path filter, and then enter swnetperfmon.db.
  3. Open the empty Orion Web Console.
  4. Check for any access denied errors.

Proceed with the resolution below if there are access denied errors for network service.

Environment

All NPM versions

Cause 

This is an environmental issue related to group policy, hardening, and restrictive rules within the security of the product.

Resolution

Note: This is a workaround. You are expected to investigate your own environment issues. SolarWinds uses network service by default.

  1. Open Inetmgr.
  2. Right-click on the Solarwinds Orion application pool.
  3. Click Advanced Settings.
  4. Under Identity, change the Network Service to Local system.
  5. Open a command prompt as an administrator.
  6. Enter IISRESET.
  7. Open C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\StopNetPerfMon.exe.
  8. Restart all Orion services.
