Stop SAM services

It is important to stop the SolarWinds SAM 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.

  1. Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Advanced Features > Orion Service Manager, and then expand Services.
  2. Select each service, except the SQL Server service, and then click Stop.
    • If you have more than one Polling Engine, you need to stop each additional polling engine before continuing.
    • Do not stop the SQL Service. The SQL Service needs to be running in order to make the necessary changes to the database.

  3. Click File > Exit.
