When you migrate your SolarWinds Orion server to a different computer, you may need to modify your agents so they communicate with the new server.

If any of the following have changed, you must modify your agents:

  • IP address
  • DNS
  • Database

Modify agents to point to the new server in one of the following ways:

  • Re-deploy the agents from the Orion server.
  • Manually change the Orion server IP address the agent uses using the Control Panel.
  • Use the Group Policy Administrative template to redirect existing agents to the new Orion server. This requires endpoints be joined to an active directory domain.

If you have not cloned your certificates, you must migrate them to the new server.
