Updated June 6, 2016


This article describes how to use the Orion Permission Checker Tool. SolarWinds Orion ships with a utility for checking Windows permissions and Windows may prevent certain services to function correctly. 


All Orion Core versions


  1. Use Windows search to find OrionPermissionChecker.exe 
  2. Note: It is usually in C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\OrionPermissionChecker.exe
  3. Launch the application from the file location (Run as Administrator).
  4. Click Check.
  5. Click Repair.

    Note: GPO may undo your repair action. The best and most definite way to fix permissions issues is to manually assign the appropriate permissions to the Location.
