Open Issues

Issue
The "Calls by 24 Hours" report may need to be viewed in Report Writer if the report takes longer to export than the page refresh rate. This frequently happens when you have a large amount of call data to export.
Some default headers in Report Writer for do not display correctly. You must manually modify the column headers.
Cisco Call Manager version 4.1 is not fully supported at this time.
VoIP and Network Quality Manager will continue to poll and display IP SLA operation data after unmanaging associated nodes.
The VoIP Call Path resource indicates invalid latency thresholds when highlighting values in red. This resource does not use the latency thresholds configured when editing individual IP SLA Operations as it should. Instead, the resource uses an old global threshold setting that is no longer used by VoIP and Network Quality Manager.
You cannot add the Operation Availability resource when editing the Custom Object resource.
Old IP SLA jobs are not deleted after configuring to the new database format and sometimes after upgrading from 3.5 to 3.5.1
There is not a way to change the operation number of an existing manual operation created by the user.
When the number of open telnet connections are limited on a router, results may take longer than expected to appear.
Operations running on devices using a time zone code set to something other than UTC will show an incorrect time offset. The time zone will be considered to be UTC+0. Consider the following work-arounds:
  • Change the time zone code on the device to UTC format.
  • Modify the ipsla.timezones.xml file located in the C:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\VoIP Monitor folder and add a new time zone using the example provided with an offset in minutes. Restart the Orion Module Engine and Job Engine.
CLI operations without read/write SNMP credentials cannot be deleted. To work around this issue, specify the read/write community string for the operations you want to delete before deleting them.
Hops are not displayed for ICMP Path Echo operations when the operations have been manually created with an invalid configuration. In this situation, the operation status is still displayed as Up, but will only report the entire round trip time instead of each individual hop.
Using > characters in graph names causes rendering failures. To work around this issue, do not use the > character in your graph names.
VoIP and Network Quality Manager only reports what the network devices are reporting. In some cases, path operations will not show all hops in a path or show one hop more than once because the device is reporting these hops inaccurately.
URLs that have uppercase letters for "ftp" and "http" are not processed properly. When creating or editing IP SLA operations, type URLs using lowercase letters for ftp and http. For example, http://solarwinds.com instead of HTTP://solarwinds.com.
Reports that include details from two identical operations will only list one instance the operation.
If the SolarWinds Information service is stopped, IP SLA web resources may display SQL errors.
Additional pollers may indicate a "down" status when the poller is actually up and running on the Collector Services resource.
When editing IP SLA Node properties, clicking Use Default does not set the source IP address to the IP address assigned to the Orion node.
The Operation Availability resource does not have an Edit button to allow users to configure the resource and specify a date range.
Administrative functions may be limited if your VoIP and Network Quality Manager server and your Orion NPM server are not in the same domain. SolarWinds recommends that you install VoIP and Network Quality Manager on the same server as Orion NPM.
An SQL exception may occur when you try to open VoIP and Network Quality Manager on an additional Orion Web Console if the Orion server hosting the shared database does not also have VoIP and Network Quality Manager installed. SolarWinds recommends that you not install VoIP and Network Quality Manager on an additional Orion Web Console unless the original Orion server is also hosting VoIP and Network Quality Manager.

Migrating Reports to Another VoIP and Network Quality Manager Installation

Custom reports that you have created for a standard installation of VoIP and Network Quality Manager are easily migrated to a second installation, typically an Additional Poller. The following procedure copies existing reports from one VoIP and Network Quality Manager installation to another.

To migrate VoIP and Network Quality Manager reports from one installation to another:

  1. Open the Orion Reports folder, located in Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\ on your original VoIP and Network Quality Manager server.
  2. Select the reports you want to copy to your second VoIP and Network Quality Manager server, using Ctrl+Click or Shift+Click as necessary, and then click Edit > Copy.
  3. Locate your second VoIP and Network Quality Manager server on your network, and then open its Orion Reports folder, located in Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\.
  4. Click Edit > Paste to paste your reports in the Reports folder on your second VoIP and Network Quality Manager server.

Your original VoIP reports are now available to your second VoIP and Network Quality Manager installation.
