WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Should I Move My Database to the Cloud?

So you’ve been running an on-premises SQL Server® for a while now. Maybe you’ve moved it from bare metal to a VM, and have seen some positive benefits. But, do you want to see more? If you said “YES!”, then this session is for you, as James Serra will review the many benefits that can be gained by moving your on-prem SQL Server to an Azure® VM (IaaS). He’ll also talk about the many hybrid approaches, so you can gradually move to the cloud. If you are interested in cost savings, additional features, ease of use, quick scaling, improved reliability, and ending the days of upgrading hardware, this is the session for you.

Cannot enable integration with STM

Updated March 13, 2017


When enabling STM integration, you get the following error:

Unable to connect to Storage Profiler. Make sure the connecting Storage Profiler is at least v6.0 or newer and the required port is opened in firewalls.


The firewall is open. Software version is correct. In the logs there is an error:

23 Aug 2016 08:06:32 [ERROR] - Error sending data:
Caused by: Software caused connection abort: socket write error


  • SRM 6.3
  • STM 6.x


Incorrect configuration of Tomcat on STM side.


  1. In the STM server, go to STM install folder \conf (usually in c:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Storage Manager Server\conf).
  2. Open the server.xml file for editing (Notepad has to be opened as administrator). It is advised to take a backup of that file before any changes are made.
  3. Locate the connector element for port 8443 (not the commented out section containing string: <Connector port="8443").
  4. Remove one constant TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHAfrom the ciphers attribute. Do not remove TLS_DHE_DSS_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA.
  5. Make sure that the sslEnabledProtocols attribute is set to TLSv1.
  6. Save the server.xml file.
  7. Restart STM’s web server service.
  8. Open SRM and try to integrate with STM.
