SolarWinds Orion Installer cannot upgrade a remote NTA Flow Storage Database

Overview

When you upgrade an existing NTA installation with the NTA Flow Storage Database installed on a remote server, using the SolarWinds Orion Installer, the Orion Installer cannot upgrade the remote Flow Storage Database.

Environment

  • NTA 4.2.2 through 4.2.3
  • NTA Flow Storage database running on FastBit database engine

Cause

With SolarWinds Orion Installer, when you install fresh the latest version of NTA, the NTA Flow Storage Database will install locally. Upgrades of both NTA and the NTA Flow Storage Database will then happen automatically.

If you are upgrading an existing NTA installation where the NTA Flow Storage Database is installed on a remote server, SolarWinds Orion Installer cannot upgrade the remote NTA Flow Storage Database and displays the following error message: 

The Fastbit server for NTA is installed remotely. After the upgrade of NTA, the Fastbit server will need to be upgraded manually. Refer to the NTA Administrator's Guide for more details.

Resolution

After SolarWinds Orion Installer completes the upgrade of NTA, you must upgrade the remote NTA Flow Storage Database manually, using the stand-alone installer.

 

Use the following to download the NTA standalone installer to upgrade Netflow on both the application server and the Netflow Flow Storage Database server
