DPAIM 11.1.1 Release Notes

 

Updated December 4, 2018

SolarWinds DPA Integration Module (DPAIM) 11.1.1 contains compatibility fixes to support the latest version of Orion Platform — version 2018.4 — which includes several new features and improvements, as described next. 

For information about the latest version of SolarWinds DPA, see the DPA 12.0 release notes.

New features and improvements

This release includes the following new features and improvements for Orion Platform 2018.4:

  • Centralized upgrades: Upgrade Additional Polling Engines, Additional Web Servers, and High Availability servers directly from the Orion Web Console. Upgrades run in parallel, reducing the time required to upgrade large deployments. >> Learn more
  • User authentication with the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) protocol: Log in to the Orion Web Console using Okta or Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) credentials. >> Learn more
  • Updated PerfStack-powered chart widgets: Export chart data, configure thresholds for data, and change time periods of data displayed for individual resources and nodes.
  • Orion Diagnostics: Display and download diagnostics for polling engines with the Collect Diagnostics wizard. 

See the Orion Platform 2018.4 Release Notes for details.

New customer installation

DPAIM can be installed in either of the following ways:

  • With SolarWinds SAM

    DPAIM is automatically installed with SolarWinds SAM 6.2.1 or later. If you have SAM 6.2.1 or later, you do not need to install DPAIM. All you have to do is set up the integration module.

    To install SAM, use the SolarWinds Orion Installer.

  • Standalone (SAM not required)

    If you do not plan to install SAM, download and run the SolarWinds Orion Installer to install DPAIM as a separate product. You can install DPAIM alone, or you can install DPAIM with other Orion Platform products such as SolarWinds SRM.

After you install DPAIM, you must set up the DPA Integration Module

Before you upgrade!

DPAIM 11.1.1 no longer supports Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 for Orion Platform installations. Upgrade to Windows Server 2016 before you upgrade DPAIM. For more information, see End of support notices.

How to upgrade

If you are upgrading from a previous version, use the following resources to plan and implement your upgrade:
