WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Virtualization tab missing after upgrading to VMAN 8.2 RC

Updated April 23, 2018


This issue is not present in VMAN 8.2's regular GA release. However, if you upgraded to VMAN 8.2 RC, upgrading again to VMAN 8.2 GA won't solve the issue. Follow the steps in this article to resolve to the issue manually.

After upgrading to Virtualization Manager (VMAN) 8.2 RC, the Virtualization tab disappeared and the settings at Virtual Settings > Settings/Product Specific Settings disappeared. When you open the Virtual Infrastructure Monitor (VIM) Summary view, the following error is displayed:

Unexpected Website Error: The given key was not present in the dictionary.


  • VMAN 8.2 RC


Packaging error. The OrionWeb.log file includes exceptions regarding missing VIM strings, resources, and views. This may indicate an error in packaging. 


Run the Configuration Wizard. 

  1. Navigate to:

    c:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\Packaging\Active\

    The Active directory includes two directories and one file.

  2. Delete the file and both directories.
  3. Run the Configuration Wizard.
  4. In the wizard, ensure that the Website, Services, and Database checkboxes are selected.
  5. Complete the Wizard.
