If you experience issues and are not on the latest product versions, we recommend completing a full upgrade. Use the Product Upgrade Advisor to create the upgrade path. Many of these updates solve issues you may experience part way through your upgrade.

Check the SolarWinds Success Center for troubleshooting information. We recommend searching the name of the product, the version number, any error codes or messages displayed, and the general issue you found.

If an issue occurs you need additional help with, contact Support. We recommend gathering logs and diagnostics, a screenshot of the issue, and any error codes you receive. Attach and add this information to your ticket. You may also want to gather additional diagnostics on your Additional Polling Engines (APEs) and Additional Web Servers (AWS).
