      Database configuration failed:

          Check the following:

           

          1. Are you logged in to the application server (Orion) as the local admin? (domain admin won't do).

          2. Is UAC on the application server disabled?

          3. Run OrionPermissionChecker.exe found in <installdir>\SolarWinds\Orion and fix issues, if they exist.

          4. When running ConfigurationWizard, are you connecting to the database as the Sysadmin (sa)? If not, please do so.
