Migrate agents from one Orion instance to another
This topic applies only to the following SolarWinds Platform products:
Hybrid Cloud Observability Essentials — Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced
DPAIM — LA — NAM — NPM — SAM — SCM — SRM — VMAN*
When you migrate your SolarWinds Platform server to a different computer, you may need to modify any agents that use agent-initiated communication so they communicate with the new server. Agents using server-initiated communication are migrated automatically.
If any of the following has changed, you must modify your agents:
- IP address
Modify agents to point to the new server in one of the following ways:
- Redeploy the agents from the SolarWinds Platform server (Windows and Linux/Unix).
- Manually change the SolarWinds Platform server IP address using the Control Panel (Windows and Linux/Unix).
- Manually change the SolarWinds Platform server IP address by reprovisioning (Linux/Unix).
- Use the Group Policy Administrative template to redirect existing agents to the new SolarWinds Platform server. This requires endpoints be joined to an active directory domain (Windows).
If you have not cloned your certificates, you must migrate them to the new server.
