SolarWinds and Framework 3.5


Pretty straight forward question. If I uninstall and reinstall 3.5 in 2012 SQL with SolarWinds databases, will I need to reinstall any SolarWinds components/Modules? I just don't want to have weird issues in the future when it goes production here shortly.

Thanks in advance

why do you want to uninstall and then reinstall? if you do uninstall and then reinstall and get the needed updates (updates are only a good practice) if solarwinds depends upon any .net < v4 it will work just fine

Long story, that's just how it worked out. The question is if there are any modules or apps that will be affected or if it's business as usual after reinstall?

If you are talking about the server hosting the database (ONLY) for the SolarWinds tool, then you are fine. The database server doesn't REQUIRE Framework 3.5 from a SolarWinds perspective.

If you have one server running both the database and the Solarwinds software (which I STRONGLY advise against in a production environment) then yes, Framework 3.5 is needed and you can expect your SolarWinds functionality to break until it's back in place.

BUT... afaik, uninstalling and reinstalling shouldn't break anything else about SolarWinds. It just needs to be there.
