    NTA 3.8 Install Took us down

    pyro13g

      Totally broke the NTA web tab.  Can't look at any of my interface traffic.  thanks a lot.  I'm about done with ending up with broken stuff every time an update is installed.  I get the error not matter what I click on.

       

      Re-running  config wizard as I write this.   It's done, crossing fingers as I hit the refresh button.  Nope still  f'in busted.  Restoring my server back to this morning.  Let me know when 3.8 installs without breaking itself.

       

       

      The Orion website is currently unable to display this page. Orion polling and alerting services often continue running, though this page cannot be displayed. Please take the following steps to attempt to alleviate the issue:

      1. Log in to the website again and navigate to another Orion page, allowing you to isolate the error to this page.
      2. Ensure the Orion services are still running.
      3. Check that your SQL Server is still running and accessible.

      Please notify SolarWinds of this error. We will address and help you fix the issue.

      Your specific error is:

      The file '/Orion/TrafficAnalysis/Resources/NetflowTopResources/TopIPAddressGroups.ascx' does not exist.

            If you encounter something similar goto Admin  Manage Views  Open the view your getting the error in.   Delete the offending resource(s).

             

            Thanks Matt!

              Hello,
              we are sorry for this issue. We found bug when TOP XX IP Address Groups are on Interface Details and NTA is upgraded to 3.8. But we have two simple ways how to fix it:

              1. Upgrade to 3.8 and then run following SQL script on your Orion DB:
              UPDATE Resources SET ResourceFile = '/Orion/TrafficAnalysis/Resources/NetflowTopResources/TopIPGroups.ascx'
              WHERE ResourceFile = '/Orion/TrafficAnalysis/Resources/NetflowTopResources/TopIPAddressGroups.ascx'

              2. Before you upgrade to 3.8, remove IP Address Groups Resource from Interface details and when 3.8 is installed, put it back onto the view.

              Both options are safe and they fix this issue. You can choose the solution which is more suitable for you.

              And we would like to make goto meeting with you and go thru the whole upgrade process to ensure everything works fine and help you with any possible issue there.
              Is it possible and suitable for you? If so, we can also present you new features in NTA 3.8 and answer your questions about NTA. Also we will be happy to get feedback about NTA product if you want.

              Please let me know me if you would like to do the goto meeting with our development team.

              Thanks,
              Ondrej Salplachta | Senior Developer, NTA

                I'm good.  Removed it from my view.  Ran your query and returned zero rows affected so I shouldn't encounter it again.
