Table of contents

Updated May 23, 2017


This article describes how to reinstall an Orion product to match the versions installed when the database backup was created after a ransomware attack, such as the WannaCry virus.


All Orion Platform versions


  1. Open Database Manager or SQL Studio Manager.
  2. Open the Orion database.
  3. Go to the ConfigWizardlog table or use the following query:
    SELECT TOP 1000 * FROM [dbo].[ConfigWizardLog]
  4. Check the last date and time when the configuration wizard was run.
  5. Take note of the product and version listed.
  6. Install the same product and version on the Orion server.

If you are having issues with the configuration wizard after a backup of the database, see Configuration wizard error when restoring to a previous database.
