CORE-9111.png
 

This usually occurs when TLS 1.0 and 1.1 are disabled. 

Environment

  • All Orion Platform versions

Steps

  1. Install Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Native ClientQFE on your Orion application server: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=50402
  2. On your application server, go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\"
  3. Make a backup of the file: SWNetPerfMon.db
  4. Open SWNetPerfMon.db in Notepad (as administrator). 
  5. In the top-most section, probably the 4th line, it will say: ConnectionString=provider=XXXXXXXXXX. Change this to: ConnectionString=provider=SQLNCLI11
  6. Do not make any other changes to this file. Save and close the db file.
