Does upgrade that easy, says I need to update other moduls first, but those modules said I needed to update NPM first?

Have just upgraded our test server to NPM 11.0.1. Enjoying getting our feet wet with QoE. Quick question - What happened to the orion win32 tool - "Orion Service Manager" - to stop/start or quickly check status of key orion services? It has disappeared following upgrade, but no mention in release notes.

Turns out if you are trying to view the web page off the same server as the one Orion is on, there are issues, turns out the system was working OK I just needed to view the site from another system.

Hi Ellen,

You can still access the Orion Service Manager by going to:
Start => SolarWinds Orion => Advanced Features => Orion Service Manager

When upgrading from 10.4 to 11.0 it uninstalls the service manager and then installs it again with the updates.  That's probably why your saved links pointing to the Service Manager disappeared after upgrading to 11.0.
