    Find and Change Background Image to a Map

    jerryrodriguez

      I am new to the SolarWinds NPM and am trying to figure out how to change an existing background image to my Home/Dashboard Map. The current image is not linked and I don't see it in the "Background Images" location using Atlas. Can someone out there help?

          1. Download an image and save it in C:\Users\Public\Pictures\NetworkAtlas Backgrounds
          2. Open Atlas select new network map after it opens select the background image you downloaded and drag drop the objects you want onto the map
          3. Save the map MyNewMap
          4. Go back to NPM and select edit on the Map on the home page there you will see a drop down of maps that are available select MyNewMap and it will appear in your home page.

              Ok, sounds good. I can add an image. This is great! Can I change the size of the .jpg image?

               

              Also,

              I have two more questions:

              1. How do I find the current background image if it is not linked and located in the C:\Users\Public\Pictures\NetworkAtlas Backgrounds?

              2. If I change a background image using Atlas, will the changes occur globally throughout our network to all the NPM clients or will I need to "Edit" each and every client and select "MyNewMap" for each to see the changes?

              Thank you for your help.

                  Can I change the size of the .jpg image?

                  You can edit the image in any photo editor to reduce the size of the image.


                  How do I find the current background image if it is not linked and located in the C:\Users\Public\Pictures\NetworkAtlas Backgrounds? Not sure by default all images are there in that folder

                  It will change for all users as long as they have the same default summary view in their user accounts as you do.
