The user credentials for the Central and remote DPA servers must match. See Configure authentication for Central Server for more information.

  1. Click Options > Administration > Manage Central.
  2. Click Add Server.
  3. Enter information about the remote SolarWinds DPA server.
  4. Click Test connection, and click Save.

    A successful test indicates that SolarWinds DPA can communicate with the remote server through the provider host and port. It does not indicate that DPA can authenticate users.

    If the test fails, check the host name in the Server Name field. Does it contain an underscore (_) character? An underscore is not valid for host names. If you cannot rename the host, enter the IP address.

  5. Repeat steps 1 - 4 for the remaining remote SolarWinds DPA servers.

The details of your remote SolarWinds DPA servers are not stored in the repository, but in a file on your Central Server, located here:

<DPA_Home>/iwc/tomcat/ignite_config/iwc/central/RemoteRepositories.json

This is a plain-text JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) file. No sensitive data is stored in this file.
