Moving Older Map Maker Maps
For versions of Orion NPM prior to 9.5, you will need to follow the steps in this section. Newer versions of Orion NPM include the Network Atlas maps, which are stored in the database so there's nothing to move.
The best way to move your custom Map Maker maps from the old server to the new is to use the Publish to Remote Web Server utility within Map Maker. Using this utility ensures that all your custom maps, icons, and backgrounds transfer correctly.
Note: Maps and map objects created or edited in Orion Network Atlas are stored in the Orion database. If the database is successfully migrated, there is no need to migrate any additional Network Atlas map files. For more information about migrating your Orion database, see "Moving Your Orion NPM Database" on the Orion NPM Documentation page.
To copy your custom maps to the new Orion NPM server:
- Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Map Maker.
- Click File > Publish to Remote Web Server.
- Type either the IP address or the name of the new Orion NPM server in the Remote Web Server field.
- If you did not install Orion NPM in the default path on the new server, either click the ellipsis (...) or click Select the Installation Directory, and then browse to the \Orion folder on the new server.
- If you want to specify which maps you wish to publish to the remote web server, uncheck Complete Synchronization.
Note: This feature helps when multiple users are creating and publishing maps at different intervals.
- Click OK to publish your maps to the new server.
- Click OK when the transfer has completed.
- Close Map Maker.
