Do I need a connection to the Orion/NPM database?



  • NTA 4.x


Yes. If you are installing NTA Flow Storage Database on a dedicated server, you will be required to enter the hostname/IP and credentials of the Orion/NPM Database during the Configuration Wizard. NTA requires this connection for CBQoS and other information provided by NPM.
