Reconfigure database connection

Starting with 2023.3, you can change the credentials for SolarWinds Platform database or change the database connection string in a simplified Configuration Wizard run.

If you need to change the database used by the SolarWinds Platform, complete the full Configuration Wizard. Using the Reconfigure database connection option will not enable you to create a new database, you can only use the existing one.

  1. Launch the Configuration wizard on the server hosting your main polling engine.

  2. On the Welcome step, select the Show advanced options box, select Reconfigure database connection only, and complete the wizard.

Only relevant steps will be displayed.
