Read this section for descriptions of the new features and improvements EOC offers in this release, or compare it with previous releases of EOC.
Configure tile refresh period
In EOC 2.1.1, you now can configure tiles to automatically refresh after a specified time interval in seconds. From the new Web Console Settings page, located under EOC settings, you can define the refresh interval for tiles from a minimum value of 5 seconds up to a maximum value of 3600 seconds.
For information about installing Enterprise Operations Console see the SolarWinds Orion Installer. After installation, review the EOC Getting Started Guide to begin using EOC.
As of the release of EOC 2.0, the Enterprise Operations Console has been rebuilt to run on the Orion Platform. If you are running EOC 2.0, you can upgrade to EOC 2.1 using the same server.
Note: The organization of custom tiles in EOC 2.0 is not preserved when upgrading to 2.1.
Due to this rebuild, users of versions prior to EOC 2.0 must install EOC to 2.1 on a separate server. To begin using the new features, simply install EOC 2.1 on a different server from your current EOC edition.
How to upgrade
If you are upgrading from EOC 2.0 or later, use the SolarWinds Orion Installer to upgrade one or more Orion Platform products simultaneously.
If you are upgrading from an earlier version prior to 2.0, use the legacy product upgrade guide to plan and implement an upgrade to EOC 2.0. Then use the SolarWinds Orion Installer to complete the upgrade.
|A SolarWinds Site is reconfigured to point to a new database|
|Issue: If you add a SolarWinds Site to EOC and then the site is reconfigured to point to a new database, EOC dashboards and reports do not work correctly and an error is displayed.|
|A site or group used to filter a custom tile is removed|
|Issue: If you create a custom tile and then an administrator removes a site or group used to filter the data that the tile displays, the tile displays invalid data.|
|Missing application statuses on a custom tile|
|Issue: If a custom tile is filtered by a group that contains applications and Application is selected as the Entity Filter, the tile does not display application status information.|
|Resolution: Do not filter by a group containing applications and choose Applications as the Entity Filter.|
|A custom tile is filtered by a group that contains another group|
|Issue: A custom tile displays invalid data if it is filtered by a group that contains another group.|
|Resolution: Do not filter by a group that contains another group.|
|Using the browser's Back button to return to the Enterprise Environment Summary|
|Issue: If you click a link in a status resource tile on the Enterprise Environment Summary view, the Asset Explorer opens. If you then click the browser's Back button, you return to the Enterprise Environment Summary view. However, the titles of the Environment Summary and Active Alerts resources are not displayed.|
|Work-around: Use the menu to navigate back to the Enterprise Environment Summary view.|
|Resolution: If this occurs, refresh the browser page to restore the titles.|
