I'm currently trying to finish installing the NTA 4.0.1 . I've completed the NTA database install part and I'm now working on the NTA server portion.
At the very end of the install, when the window opens and has ' Configuration installing' with the status bar showing progress, it finishes with an error.
Specifically it says:
*Website Configuration Failed: Un-handled exception occurred during instantiating type [SolarWinds.Orion.Core.Discovery.Plugin] from assembly [SolarWinds.Orion.Core.DiscoveryPlugin]*
Went ahead with the HotFixes but I received the same error during the configuration phase of each HotFix.
Did some research, and the discovery plugin mentioned in the error is from HotFix 2 on the NPM module.
A theory was it needed to be un-installed and re-installed? I shouldn't install it period? It was installed incorrectly?
If anyone has any experience in this, I would greatly appreciate the feedback. Working to get this installed on an Enterprise network now rather than later.
Sorry to bump this old post, but I just installed 4.1.1 and ran into the same problem. I ran the configuration wizard again on the Website and resulted in another NCM error. Did this ever get resolved?
Website configuration failed:
• Unhandled exception occured during instantiating type [SolarWinds.NCM.Discovery.Plugin.NcmDiscoveryPlugin] from assembly [SolarWinds.NCM.Discovery.Plugin]
Website configuration failed:
• Exception while configuring plugin SolarWinds® NCM Integration Plugin component Orion Website Update. Request for the permission of type 'System.Security.Permissions.RegistryPermission, mscorlib, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed.
NCM guys gave me this help last time:
Thanks for the response Petr.
I opened a ticket but resolved it before support could provide much direction. Along the way I learned some things that hopefully might be useful to someone.
I am running NPM 11.5.2 with integrated DPA 9.5.0. I had installed the DPA 10.0.0 without running the configuration wizard after. I then proceeded to install NTA 4.1.1 and when the configuration wizard did run, it failed with the errors above along with the web site not loading.
I ended up uninstalling the DPA, NTA and repairing NCM. This resolved the web site not loading. From there I installed NTA and it worked. I can provide more specifics if necessary.
My advice here would be to get diagnostics from the poller(s) and log a support case.You could try running the Configuration Manager (not the installer for NTA) again, and repair everything, see if that fixes the problem, but I'd log that support call as a CYA exercise.
If SolarWinds advises that you do the repair and it goes pear shaped, at least you have the 'Support told me to do it' shield
