All Orion Platform versions (primary polling engine, additional web server)

  4. Right click and choose Remove.
  5. In the left pane click Application Pools.
  6. In the center pane select SolarWinds Orion Application Pool and then click Remove.
  7. Open the File Explorer and navigate to the folder where IIS keeps websites. (C:\inetpub)
  8. Locate the SolarWinds folder and rename it (you could delete it but for safety SolarWinds recommends renaming it).
  9. Navigate to .Net Temporary Files folder:
    C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files\root\
  10. Delete the content of the folder.
