View database details and data in the Database Manager

The Database Manager is used to add additional servers to your Orion configuration, perform queries, view database and table details, export data, and edit database values.

For more advanced database maintenance, SolarWinds recommends that you use the Server Management Studio provided with Microsoft SQL Server to back up, clear historical maintenance records, and perform other maintenance.

If you need to backup or restore a database, you should use the SQL Server Management Studio. For details, see Creating a Database Backup.
