  3. Select the server where the service is running.
  4. Select services to manage and use the buttons to start, restart, or stop the selected services.

    To manage websites or dependent services, such as Message queuing or Rabbit MQ, go to the Websites or Dependencies tab.


Manage SolarWinds services from the stand-alone Orion Service Manager

  1. Go to the Start menu > All Programs > Solarwinds Orion.
  2. Click Advanced Features.
  3. On some versions of Windows server, you will need to find Orion Service Manager manually.

  5. Click Shutdown Everything to stop all Orion services or Start Services to start the services.
