When you change the database password in SQL, you also need to change the password the Orion Platform products use to connect to the database.


Updating the password for the actual SQL user is done on your SQL database. If you are unsure how to do it, consult your DBA.


All Orion Platform products


  1. Log in to your Primary SolarWinds server.
  2. Click Start > SolarWinds Orion > Configuration Wizard and update the database password in the Configuration wizard. See Run the Orion Configuration wizard.
  3. Log in to any additional polling engines and web servers and run the Configuration wizard for Database, and Services for each of them.
