Fixed issues

This hotfix addresses an issue in WPM 2.2.1 where WPM players on the WPM server and all additional pollers are unable to find the required certificate for playback imported from recordings in the certificate dialog window. 

This is because the imported certificate 'subject' property contains additional values like ", OU=XXXX, OU=PKI, OU=XXX, O=Company, C=US", which were not present in the certificate that was installed manually.

Environment

  • WPM 2.2.1

Notes

Download the hotfix from https://customerportal.solarwinds.com/HotFixes.

 

This hotfix contains a single file, PlaybackPlayer.exe, which must be installed on the primary WPM server.

Installation instructions

  1. Back up the file PlaybackPlayer.exe to a folder outside of the Orion folder structure. 
    It is usually found in these directories: 
    * C:\Program Files(x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\SEUM\Installers
    *  C:\inetpub\SolarWinds\Orion\SEM\Installers
  2. Stop the SolarWinds Orion Module Engine service.
  3. Replace the file PlaybackPlayer.exe in the following directories with the version from this archive.

       * C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\SEUM\Installers
       * C:\inetpub\SolarWinds\Orion\SEUM\Installers   

  1. Start the SolarWinds Orion Module Engine service.

Result

All WPM players will be automatically upgraded to version 2.2.1.444 for all additional pollers and the WPM server.

Uninstallation instructions

  1. Stop the SolarWinds Orion Module Engine service.
  2. Restore the PlaybackPlayer.exe from the backup you created during installation in those directories:

      * C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\SEUM\Installers
      * C:\inetpub\SolarWinds\Orion\SEUM\Installers 

  1. Start the SolarWinds Orion Module Engine service.

On the primary WPM Server and any additional poller:
   WARNING: A reboot of a machine may be required!
