  • That's not new to this version, its been a common bug since as far back as I can remember.  At times when I was more motivated I just wrote a trigger on the nodesettings table to replace it any time that comes up with the actual ip of the node.

  • In the 2020.2.5 version there is a syntax error in NodeDetails.ascx.
    Solarwinds have added the file with following in several lines: DefaultSanitizer.SanitizeHtml
    This include the line for web browsing, which breaks the line.
    It is line number 224 and looks like this:  <td class="Property"><a href="<%= DefaultSanitizer.SanitizeHtml(WebBrowseTemplate) %>"><%= DefaultSanitizer.SanitizeHtml(WebBrowseTemplate) %></a></td>

    The web browsing line worked in 2020.2.4 and looked like this:  <td class="Property"><a href="<%=WebBrowseTemplate %>"><%=WebBrowseTemplate %></a></td>

    NodeDetails.ascx is located in this directory: C:\inetpub\SolarWinds\Orion\NetPerfMon\Resources\NodeDetails\

  • This is indeed a result of HTML sanitization. We are tracking this under CORE-17460.
