SolarWinds DPA for Microsoft Windows comes as a typical Windows installer. You can download the 64-bit installer as a ZIP file from the SolarWinds Customer Portal.

Start the installer

The default installation folder is C:\Program Files\Solarwinds\DPA. If you choose not to specify a custom installation folder during the installation process, this folder becomes the SolarWinds DPA Home directory.

The installation process creates a Windows service called Ignite PI Server. This service is set to run automatically when the server is restarted. You can stop SolarWinds DPA by shutting down this service. You can change the Startup type of this service to Manual.

  1. Log in to your Windows server as an administrator.
  2. Extract and run the installer program file from the ZIP file.
  3. Follow the instructions in the installer.

After installation

  1. Go to http://yourserver:8123 in a web browser.
  2. Create the repository database.
  3. Register database instances for monitoring.
