    Solarwinds NPM Map Engine Failure

    deiberts

      I'm having an error on our web pages where the Orion map Icons are VERY basic and the network background is completely missing with a white background.  I have a case number opened (1141747) but the steps provided where to recreate website, Clear ASP.NET, repaired core installer, and re-ran configuration wizard.

       

      Some background:

      We moved Solarwinds from Windows2008r2 to Windows2012r2 and I went through the migration process.  Everything works great except the maps... Load up Network Atlas and it recognizes the maps just fine.  I even went and built a fresh map with a few nodes on it and tried to test that but no success either. 

       

      Here is a brief on the error I'm receiving from the orionweb.log file:

       

      WARN MapEngine - (null) Failed to dispose map objects

      System.Runtime.InteropServices.InvalidComObjectException: Com

      object that has been separated from its underlying RCW cannot be used.

           at Solarwinds.MapEngine.MappingControl.get_MapObjects()

           at Solarwinds.MapEngine.MappingControl.MapClose()

       

       

      This is also on a network where I can't "Pull" logs from...If anyone can help with this I would greatly.

          There is a thread here: Network Atlas Crash the issue was a corrupt installation back in the days. Maybe reinstall the binaries and let the config wizard run.

          Cheers,

              Not sure if it's a Network Atlas issue because when I open Network Atlas, all the maps, objects, and backgrounds works fine within the editing tool.  When you go to the actual webpage is when it doesn't work properly.

                  Come to find out, it was a permissions issue with our environment variables under the advance system settings.  In our environment, we don't allow network service to communicate in and out of a folder with the word %temp% or %tmp%.  So it was pointed to another folder which I forced to have network service read/write privs and that fixed the maps from loading up on the actual website. 

                   

                  Orion permission checker didn't catch this right away but after a reboot and re-ran the installation wizard for NPM, it found it.
