Known issues

Upgrading to SolarWinds Hybrid Cloud Observability 2022.2 RC1 deletes all data in the parent folder

Issue: When upgrading to SolarWinds Hybrid Cloud Observability 2022.2 RC1, the installer attempts to delete the parent folder. In environments where Orion Platform was not installed in the default folder (C:\program files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion) and the installation folder was called Orion, you might lose data located in the parent folder.

Example: If your installation folder is called Orion and is located in C:\My Programs\Orion, the upgrade would also delete the entire C:\My Programs folder.

Work-around: Before you start the upgrade, check the installation folder for Orion Platform. If it is called Orion, make sure it is safe to have the entire parent folder deleted. If it is not safe, do not upgrade to RC1.

NTM maps are not supported in SolarWinds platform 2022.2

Issue: After upgrading to SolarWinds platform 2022.2, Network Atlas does not support NTM maps.

Work-around: Open the NTM map in an older Network Atlas version, convert it to a Network Atlas map. See Export maps in NTM help for details.

MIB database version not up-to-date after the upgrade to SolarWinds platform 2022.2

Issue: After upgrading to SolarWinds platform 2022.2, your MIB Database might not be up-to-date. During the upgrade, SolarWinds Installer uninstalls all products and re-deploys the MIB Database that was up-to-date on SolarWinds platform 2022.2 GA date.

Work-around: Update the MIB Database manually.
