Overview

This article describes how to change the IP address of any server hosting either a main Orion poller or an additional poller by completing the Configuration Wizard on the server with the updated IP address.

Environment

All Orion Core versions

Steps

Warning: Completing the Configuration Wizard requires all SolarWinds services to be restarted, which temporarily suspends all polling and alerting and overwrites any edits made to the configuration files.

  1. Change the IP Address of your Main Poller and/or additional poller
  2. Go to Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Configuration and Auto-Discovery > Configuration Wizard in each poller if you are changing multiple sever IP addresses.
  3. Select Database and Website and then click Next.
  4. Verify and confirm all information provided in the first and second Database Settings window and then click Next.
    Note: If you are using an IP address to identify your SQL Server, verify that this is still correct.
  5. Verify and confirm all information provided in the Database Account window and then click next.
  6. Verify and confirm all information provided in the Website Settings windows and then click Next.
    Note: If you are using an IP address to identify your SQL Server, verify that this is still correct.
  7. If you are prompted to use an existing website, click Yes.
  8. When the Configuration Wizard completes, click Finish.
  9. Review the actions listed in the completing the Orion Configuration Wizard window and then click Next.

 

Running the configuration Wizard will automatically update Orion with the new ip address and update tables.
