WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

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.
