Solarwinds Orion MP for System Center Operations Manager 2007 r2 – where’s the logfile?

I was trying to run the configure utility for the Solarwinds Orion MP for System Center Operations Manager 2007 r2 and getting a failure that told me to check the logfile. Where is the logfile? (It doesn’t say!) After much looking I found it in the .config in the folder for the management pack which is:

C:Program FilesSolarWindsOrion Management Pack for OpsManager 2007OrionSCOMConfigApp.exe.config

Since they are using logforj for a standard .net app, it was easy to see. The value was:

<file value="${ALLUSERSPROFILE}DocumentsSolarWindsOrion Management Pack for OpsManager 2007ConfigurationWizard.log" />

On my system this translated to:

C:UsersPublicDocumentsSolarWindsOrion Management Pack for OpsManager 2007ConfigurationWizard.log

In our particular instance, the problem was:

Could not allocate space for object ‘dbo.ManagementPackStaging’.’PK_ManagementPackStaging’ in database ‘OperationsManager’ because the ‘PRIMARY’ filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup.

This was resolved by opening the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio and going to databases/OperationsManager, then properties, files, and increasing the initial size on the “PRIMARY” database file. Once I did this, I was able to configure the management pack successfully.
