Recommendations

  • Use 64-bit version of SQL Server.
  • Use the Simple database recovery mode to ensure best performance.
  • You can set the database recovery model to Full Recovery if your Orion Database is hosted on a SQL Cluster or if you use Always On Availability. However, you must back up your database regularly and ensure that volume you store your transaction log has free space that is at least equal to or greater than the size of your Orion database. Your transaction logs will continue to grow indefinitely until a database backup is performed and the transactions committed to the database. We recommend daily database backups when you use the Full Recovery model.

Other software SolarWinds recommends you install the SQL Server Management Studio component on your Orion database server.

The Orion Installer installs the following required x86 components if they are not found on your Orion database server:
