Orion NPM Database password

Jump to solution

Hi guys,

Hypothetical.

Say someone created a database for Orion NPM and then didn't document the credentials and then when it came to install NCM and needs to know the database password he can't remember it.

Anyway, of finding out what that existing password is, is it stored in plaintext in a .cfg file anywhere?

If not and the password on the database password has been reset can it be changed in Orion so it can still connect or does NPM need to be re-installed?

This hypothetical by the way isn't me but before I got involved :p.

It's stored in SWNetPerfMon.db in the Orion subfolder of your install, e.g.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Solarwinds\Orion\SWNetPerfMon.db
(remove the (x86) for 32bit OS)

It's a plain-text file, just open it with Wordpad.

I don't think this applies to newer SQL Server versions. All I see in the file is the encrypted password.

I'm running NPM 11.5.2 (will upgrade early next week) and it's still in plain text
