Stop SolarWinds services
Before you back up your database, stop the Orion services that are currently writing to the database. This ensures that you do not have data inconsistencies when you bring your new database server online.
If you have more than one Polling Engine, stop each additional Polling Engine before continuing.
- To start the Orion Service Manager, click SolarWinds Orion > Advanced Features program folder.
- Stop all SolarWinds services except for the SQL service. The SQL Service needs to be running to make the necessary changes to the database.
- Close the Orion Service Manager.
