After you upgrade from NPM 11.5.x to NPM 12.0, you receive an error like the following when you try to search:
Unexpected Website Error
C:\InetPub\SolarWinds\Orion\OGS\Controls\SearchResultLogItemControl.ascx.cs(16): error CS0029: Cannot implicitly convert type 'SolarWinds.Common.Threading.LazyWithoutExceptionCache<SolarWinds.Orion.Web.UI.WebIconCache>' to 'System.Lazy<SolarWinds.Orion.Web.UI.WebIconCache>'
The Orion Global Search feature was released as a technical preview for NPM 11.5.x and products running on Orion Platform 2015.1. This preview is not supported on NPM 12.0 or any products running on Orion Platform 2016.1. It must be removed from the SolarWinds Orion server.
When the Configuratoin Wizard is complete, the search box is removed from the Orion Web Console, the elasticsearch service is uninstalled, and indexed data is removed.
