Overview

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.

 

Environment

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.

 

Steps for 8.0 and higher

  1. Open the centralized settings page at http://[orion-website-server]/Orion/Admin/AdvancedConfiguration/Global.aspx and check the SyncWizardResolvePollerByHostname checkbox in the SolarWinds.VIM.Common.VimSettings section. 
  2. Click Save.
  3. 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.
