Configure Orion Platform products to use a new database

Updated August 9, 2017


To configure your Orion Platform product to use a new database, you need to deactivate licenses, run the Configuration wizard, and reactivate the licenses. 



Starting with Orion Platform 2017.3, licenses are stored in the database. Without deactivating the current licenses, you won't be able to use the license keys for activation in the new database.


  • Orion Platform products with Orion Platform 2017.3 and later.


To configure your Orion Platform  to use a new database:

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an Administrator.
  2. Deactivate your licenses. Click Settings > All Settings > License Manager, and click Deactivate for all licenses.
  3. Run the Configuration wizard for Database, select New Database, and complete the wizard.
  4. Activate your licenses with the License Manager.

Your Orion Platform product will store polled data into the new database.
