Issue:

In the event that it is necessary to change the IP address assigned to your SolarWinds server, completing the following procedure will ensure that all related SolarWinds components are made aware of the update.

Resolution:

To change the IP address of your SolarWinds server:

  1. Using an account with administrative privileges, log on to your SolarWinds server.
  1. Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Advanced Features > Orion Service Manager.
  2. Click Shutdown Everything.
    Note: Do not close Orion Service Manager at this time.
  3. Change the IP address of your SolarWinds server.
  1. Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Configuration and Auto-Discovery > Configuration Wizard.
  1. Check Services, Database, and Website, and then complete the Configuration Wizard, providing the new IP address of your SolarWinds server, when prompted. For more information, see “Completing the Orion Configuration Wizard” in the SolarWinds Orion NPM Administrator Guide.
  2. On your SQL Server, open SQL Server Management Studio (click Start > All Programs > Microsoft SQL Server > SQL Server Management Studio).
  3. Using an account with the sysadmin role, log in to the SQL Server instance hosting your SolarWinds database.
  4. Click + to expand Databases > YourSolarWindsDatabase > Tables.
  5. Right-click the Engines table, and then click Select Top 1000 Rows.
  6. Note the EngineID assigned to the SolarWinds server with the changed IP address.
  7. If you have more than 200 alerts defined for objects monitored by the polling engine installed on the updated server, use the New Query Editor (right-click the Alerts table and then click Script Table as > UPDATE To > New Query Editor Window) to create a query that updates the EngineID for these alerts, as required.
  8. If you have fewer than 200 alerts defined for objects monitored by the poling engine installed on the updated server:
  1. Right-click the Alerts table.
  2. Click Edit Top 200 Rows.
  1. Edit the EngineID, as required.
