Shutdown and restart Orion services

Updated January 21, 2019


This article describes how to start, stop or restart Orion Services using Orion Service Manager.

You can access the Orion Service Manager from the Orion Web Console or as a stand-alone tool.


  • Orion products that consume Orion Platform 2018.4 and later
  • Windows 2016 and later


Manage SolarWinds services from the Orion Web Console

Starting with Orion Platform 2016.1 (Orion products such as NPM 12.0, SAM 6.2, or IPAM 4.3), you can access the Orion Service Manager directly from the Orion Web Console, without actually logging into your polling engine server.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console using an account with administrative privileges.
  2. Click Settings > All Settings, and then click Orion Service Manager in the Product-specific settings.
  3. Select the server where the service is running.
  4. Select services to manage and then click Start, Stop, or Restart.

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


Manage SolarWinds services in the stand-alone Orion Service Manager

  1. Log in to the Orion server.
  2. In the Start menu, click Solarwinds Orion > Orion Service Manager.

    In earlier Windows Server versions, click SolarWinds Orion > Advanced Features > Orion Service Manager.

  3. Click Start Everything to start all Orion services, or click Shutdown Everything to stop all services.
