I'm not sure I understand the question, but if you using Orion, it includes a MapMaker application that does this for you.
Compared to Visio, Mapmaker is maddening to use, without basic layering controls, transparency adjustments, etc...
Is there a simpler way to make Solarwinds utilize a visio-created map?
OK, If you don't mind a bit of pain once in a while, here's a solution:
- Take your Viso diagram and save it as a JPG(remember the exact size you saved it as).
- Save this JPG on the Orion server
- Create a new map, with the saved JPG as the background.
- Now drag all the Network components onto the background diagram.
When you make changes to your Viso digram, try not to move anything around.
Then save it as a JPG with the exact same dimensions as the previous JPG.
When you replave the JPG on the Orion server, everything should still line up.
Just delete/drag any removed/new nodes/interface as appropriate onto the new background.
Also it is possible to copy objects from Visio into Mapmaker.
Do a search in the Orion forum (where this post should be) for Visio & Mapmaker
