    Solarwinds Netflow Service not starting

      I may have two issues, but the root symptom was a lack of chart data.  I looked at the Solarwinds services and noticed that the Solarwinds Netflow service was not started.  I tried to start it and it would not do so.  I looked in the event viewer and see:

      Event Type: Error
      Event Source: SolarWindsNetFlowService

      1. Is the lack of chart data related to this service that will not start?

      2. Any ideas why this service will not start?

      I have opened a trouble ticket with Solarwinds support, but alas my company let our support agreement lapse. So, while someone else is working on renewing that, I hope that someone here can help me.

      By the way, I am using Solarwinds 8.5 with Netflow Traffic Analysis 3.0 on Windows Server 2003 R2.
