Solarwinds F.A.Q.

  • How can I install Solarwinds cloud on a new server?

    To start synchronizing to Solarwinds cloud, see the instructions below:

    1. Please request to Trustwave to create the firewall rule necessary according to your location:

    Solarwinds Cloud – America and Canada:

    For the whole vlan 10, other vlans from servers that will go to the cloud, and the IT machines, open TCP ports 80, 443, 2999, 5000 to access the IP range 68.169.200.214 through 68.169.200.221. This communication should be bidirectional.

    Solarwinds Cloud – Asia:

    For the whole vlan 10, other vlans from servers that will go to the cloud, and the IT machines, open TCP ports 80, 443, 2999, 5000 to access the IP range 27.111.214.112 through 27.111.214.116. This communication should be bidirectional.

    Solarwinds Cloud – Europe:

    For the whole vlan 10, other vlans from servers that will go to the cloud, and the IT machines, open TCP ports 80, 443, 2999, 5000 to access the IP range 88.84.155.188 through 88.84.155.190. This communication should be bidirectional.

  • How do I set Solarwinds to Archive my Backups for 7 years?

    For the long term retention for your cloud backups you’re expected to keep all daily backups of 30 days and then one backup per month for 7 years.

    On Solarwinds, the 30 days daily backups are configured on our side and is already in place. Although, the configuration to store one backup per month has to be configured for each server over the Backup Manager.

    To set this up, use the instructions below:

    1. Launch the Backup Manager client on the server by going to the browser and entering http://localhost:5000.
    2. Click on the Preferences tab and choose the Archiving option.
    3. Click on Add Archiving.
    4. Name. Enter End of Month Archiving.
    5. Time. Enter the time of the monthly backup you want to keep. By default, it could be set to 12:00 AM.
    6. Data Sources. Enter Files and Folders.
    7. Months. Enter All Months.
    8. Select Days of month and enter Last Day.
    9. Click on Save to complete.

    zendesk2.png

    However, currently there’s no way to specify a time limit for how long we will be keeping the backups stored because Solarwinds doesn’t configure maximum amount of time for the archival. So because of this all monthly backups are kept indefinitely until we manually delete them.

  • How can I remove a server from Solarwinds?

    To remove server from a backup list, follow the instructions below:

    • Login to the Cloud Management Console at https://backup.management.
    • Go to the Dashboard.
    • Check the box of the device that you wish to remove.
    • Click on the Delete button at the upper menu.
    • Then you’ll receive the message “The device will become inaccessible. All data backed up on it will be cleared with no possibility of recovery”.
    • Hit Delete to confirm.

  • My server changed the IP/Hostname. How can I update it on Solarwinds?

    If the server changed only the IP, the backups would not be affected because they are being recognized over the Hostname. So there’s nothing that needs to be done here.

    When the server changes the Hostname then you would have to do the process of adding the server from scratch over the Cloud Management Console and after do the pairing process over the Backup Manager with the new device details. Use the instructions below for this:

    1. Login to the Cloud Management Console at https://backup.management.
      1. From the Dashboard of the console, click on the Add button.
      2. On the Add Wizard select Servers or Workstations.
      3. Choose Installation option Regular.
      4. Enter the Device Name you’re going to be adding.

          2. Go to the Dashboard.
          3. Click on the server you need.
          4. Then go to the Modification tab.
          5. There you’ll find the Device Name and Password.
      3. Security Code. Enter a new passphrase to encrypt your data, to keep it protected from unauthorized access.
        1. It is important to remember this security code, save it securely and share it with your team, since it will not be possible to access your backup data without it or to re-install the current Backup Manager device and it is not recoverable by Hexistor nor Solarwinds support.
      4. Schedule your Backup. Specify the times you would like the server to start the daily backups. By the default you should only perform 1 Backup per day to go to the Cloud.
      5. Report via Email. Enter your email address to start receiving email reports on the status of the backup activities.
      6. File Selection. Choose the data that you want to send to the cloud. This option can be modified after the installation so you can skip it.
      7. Complete the installation by clicking Done.

    In this case, the device with the old server name would be considered as archived.

    • If you want to keep the data for the long retention needed for compliance. Just leave it on the Cloud Management Console Dashboard as is.
    • Or if you want to remove it and delete all data, go to the Cloud Management Console Dashboard, right click on the specific server and click on Delete Device.

  • What are the firewall rules that need to be created for my Solarwinds cloud backups?

    To allow the communication between your servers and the Solarwinds cloud, request the rule below, depending on your location:

  • What should I do with a “retired” server on Solarwinds?

    When a server gets retired you have the choice of either keeping it for your long term retention required for compliance, or you can delete the machine and data, so you won’t be billed for it.

    • To keep the device and it’s data for the long retention there’s really nothing you need to do other than leave it on the Dashboard of the Cloud Management Console as is. Currently Solarwinds doesn’t have a way of changing the status of the retired devices as archived, so once the server goes offline, the client would just stop connecting to run backups and you’ll see it in the Dashboard list as the others.
    • If you want to remove the retired server and delete all data, do the following:
      • Login to the Cloud Management Console at https://backup.management.
      • Go to the Dashboard.
      • Check the box of the device that you wish to remove.
      • Click on the Delete button at the upper menu.
      • Then you’ll receive the message “The device will become inaccessible. All data backed up on it will be cleared with no possibility of recovery”.
      • Hit Delete to confirm.

  • Continuous Restore for multiple devices

    If you have multiple devices to enable auto recovery, consider using a specialized solution (the Recovery Console).

    The Recovery Console is a new multi-instance recovery tool that enables system administrators and service providers to set up proactive data recovery from servers and workstations to any location.

    The Recovery Console is available starting from version 15.0.

    Use this link to download the tool:
