This article provides steps to change the IP address of the main poller for VMAN to deliver its data. This is particularly useful if the customer has 2 NICs on the Orion server.



All VMAN/VIM versions

Steps for 7.2 and lower

  1. Create a backup and edit SolarWinds.VIM.BusinessLayer.dll.config. The default location is in: c:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\VIM\).
  2. In the appSettings section, find SyncWizardResolvePollerByHostname setting and change its value to true.
  3. Re-start the Orion Module Engine service.
  4. Re-run synchronization wizard (Settings > Virtualization Settings > Run Synchronization Wizard).


This will force the integration to use hostname instead of IP. Because of that you will probably need to also edit /etc/hosts file on the appliance so that VMan is able to properly resolve the hostname to correct IP.
