Configure SSL certificate validation for target systems during Asset Inventory polling

This topic also applies to SolarWinds SCM, which supports Asset Inventory polling.

By default, SAM ignores warnings that occur when validating SSL certificates on target systems during Asset Inventory polling. You can update that setting so users are prompted to verify untrusted connections before proceeding.

  1. Log into the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Use the Orion Service Manager to stop the SolarWinds Collector Service.
  3. Navigate to the following default folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\AssetInventory\
  4. In a text editor, open SolarWinds.AssetInventory.Collector.dll.config
  5. Under <appSettings>, change the AssetInventoryVerifyServerCertificate value to "true":

    <add key="AssetInventoryVerifyServerCertificate" value="true" />

  6. Save your changes.
  7. Restart the SolarWinds Collector Service.
