Add Amazon Web Services (AWS) regions

Table of contents

Updated March 1, 2018

Overview

This article describes how to use the Database Manager to add a Amazon Web Services (AWS) region in SolarWinds SAM or VMAN by querying the Orion Platform database. 

Environment

  • SAM 6.4 or VMAN 7.1 or later

Steps

Important: SolarWinds recommends backing up the SolarWinds SQL database before making changes. For assistance, check your vendor's site for documentation and instructions. If your database is on a VM, create a snapshot or copy of the VM.

 

Perform the following steps to add AWS region:

  1. Log into your SolarWinds Application server.
  2. Open the Database Manager. (See Use Database Manager for details.)
  3. Click Add default server.
  4. Right-click the SolarWinds database and enter the following query:
    IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM CLM_AwsRegions WHERE SystemName = 'new-region')
    INSERT INTO CLM_AwsRegions([SystemName],[DisplayName],[Enabled])
    VALUES('new-region','EU (AvailablilityZone)',1)

Here is a sample script that adds Paris as an AWS region:

IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM CLM_AwsRegions WHERE SystemName = 'eu-west-3')
INSERT INTO CLM_AwsRegions([SystemName],[DisplayName],[Enabled])
VALUES('eu-west-3','EU (Paris)',1)

For SystemName and DisplayName, see Regions and Availability Zones. (© 2018 Amazon Web Services, Inc., available at https://docs.aws.amazon.com, obtained on March 1, 2018)

The latest AWS regions appear on the Cloud Summary page.
