SolarWinds - How to Add and Remove Server Pairs

Follow


Summary

This Knowledge Base article provides information about how to add and remove server pairs to the SolarWinds Orion Failover Manager.



More Information

When the SolarWinds Orion Failover Manager is opened it displays the Server Pairs Overview screen. The system must be told which pair of servers to administer, as by default the SolarWinds Orion Failover Manager is unaware of the presence of any server pairs. Once a server pair has been added, it will be available in the Overview pand.


Procedure

To Add a SolarWinds Orion Server Group

  1. Open SolarWinds Orion Failover Manager and click Add Group in the tool bar, select Add Group from the File menu, or right-click an existing group in the navigation panel and select Add Group form the menu.
  2. Type the name for the new group into the text box, and then click OK . The newly created group appears in the navigation panel on the left of the SolarWinds Orion Failover Manager window.

To Remove an Orion Failover Engine Group

  1. Select the group to be removed in the navigation panel of SolarWinds Orion Failover Manager. Click Remove Group in the tool bar or select Remove Group from the File menu. A confirmation message appears.
  2. Click Yes to remove the group.

To Add a new connection

  1. In the navigation panel, select the Orion Failover Engine group to receive the new connection. Click Add Connection in the tool bar, select Add Connection from the File menu, or right-click an existing group in the navigation panel and select Add Connection to invoke the Add Connection dialog.
  2. Type the host name or IP address for the new connection into the text box, select the Port Number (if different from the default value of 52267 ), and select a group from the Add to Group drop-down list (to add the connection to a group other than the one currently selected).

    Note: You may be prompted to login. If so, login using a valid administrator-level username and password for the server for which you are adding a connection, and then click OK .

  3. Click OK to create the new connection. The newly created connection appears in the navigation panel on the left of the SolarWinds Orion Failover Manager window, and the Server: Summary page updates to represent any existing network relationships of the added server.
  4. Repeat the process to enter the remaining connections necessary to define the new Orion Failover Engine group.
