    Updating Schema for an Additional Polling Engine

    freemen

      I am about to install SolarWinds on an additional polling engine for the first time. I was reading in the Orion NPM Admin Guide on page 137 the following:

       

      If you are using custom properties to monitor your network, you must copy related schema and configuration files from your primary Orion server to the server hosting your Additional Polling Engine."

      What does that mean?

          freemen,

          As for configuration files, you will need:

          • CustomPropertyEditor.cfg
            Default location: Volume:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\
            This lists your existing custom properties. Alternatively, you could recreate them on your new additional polling engine.
          • CustomPropertyEditor.exe.config
            Default location: Volume:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\
            This sets your FIPS policy. If FIPS is not a concern, leave it as is.

          As for schema files, you may need:

          • *.schema in Volume:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\
          • *.* in Volume:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\Schemas\

          I will update the Orion NPM documentation accordingly to clarify this point.

          HTH,
