Before you start creating maps, prepare a map management strategy. Consider the following recommendations:

  • Map only static objects. If objects move, you need to adjust their location on maps, and it is difficult to keep maps up-to-date.
  • Build maps to match the column width of your Orion Web Console views. Rescaling maps in views results in distorting of icons and texts.

To create a network map:

  1. Start the Network Atlas in the SolarWinds program folder.
  2. Provide your Orion Web Console credentials.
  3. If you are launching Network Atlas on the local computer, type localhost into Address. If you are starting Network Atlas on a remote computer, provide the IP address of the main polling engine.
  4. Click Connect.
  5. Click Network Map in the Create New section.

A new empty network map will open in the Network Atlas.

Customize the map:
