Stop SolarWinds services

This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products.

Before you back up your database, stop the SolarWinds 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.

If you have more than one Polling Engine, stop each additional Polling Engine before continuing.

  1. Start the SolarWinds Platform Service Manager. For example, click the Start button > SolarWinds Platform > SolarWinds Platform Service Manager.
  2. Stop all SolarWinds services except for the SQL service. The SQL Service needs to be running to make the necessary changes to the database.
  3. Close the SolarWinds Platform Service Manager.
