  • Save a copy of the original SolarWinds.Interfaces.Collector.dll.config file to your local drive as a backup file, in case you need to roll back later.

  1. Log in to your Orion server.
  2. Go to C:\Program Files(x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\Interfaces\
  3. Open SolarWinds.Interfaces.Collector.dll.config in a text editor.
  4. Replace the following line:
    <add key="ValidateCounters" value="True" />
    <add key="ValidateCounters" value="False" />
  5. Restart SolarWinds services. Refer to Start and stop Orion services.
