Blog Post created by Lindsay Lamb on Jul 28, 2014

How can the SQL connection's server instance, username and / or password be updated for Pharos Systems SiteMonitor?


This procedure utilizes the SiteMonitor installation utility (SiteMonitor.msi) to generate a new configuration file.  It will be necessary to locate the correct Blueprint Enterprise installation package that matches the version that is installed.

  1. On the Analyst server, navigate to the X:\Program Files (x86)\PharosSystems\SiteMonitor\Service folder, where X is the drive letter onto which Blueprint Enterprise was installed.  If the OS is 32-bit, navigate to the X:\Program Files\PharosSystems\SiteMonitor\Service folder
  2. Move the PharosSystems.SiteMonitor.Service.exe.config file out of this folder and place it on the desktop temporarily.
  3. Launch the SiteMonitor.msi installer from the Blueprint installation package.
  4. Click the Next button.
  5. Choose the Repair option.
  6. Within the Site Monitor Setup window that appears, enter the correct SQL server instance, username and password for the SiteMonitor database.
  7. Click the Next button.
  8. Cick the Repair button.
  9. Click the Finish button when completed.
  10. Launch the Pharos Systems Site Monitor Administrator to verify that the service is online and operational.
