Your secondary, or backup, server takes over all tasks in case of a failover. Download or move the backup server installer on the secondary server. The installer uses the information on the main server or polling engine to install the correct products and product versions.

If you upgrade an HA pool member, the products installed on the secondary server must match your primary server, including the version numbers.

You can open the main server's Orion Web Console while logged in to the secondary server to download the server software instead of moving the installer to the secondary server.

Before you begin, you need the credentials for your SolarWinds Orion SQL database.

  1. Open the Orion Web Console.
  2. Click Settings > All Settings > High Availability Deployment Summary.
  3. Click Setup a new HA server.

  4. On the dialog, click Get started setting up a server.
  5. Activate your HA pool license.
  6. On the Setup a High Availability Server dialog, click Download installer now.
  7. Move the downloaded installer to your secondary server and run it.
    • Select which type of backup server you want to install under High Availability.
      File:Success_Center/New_Articles/NPMAG_forMT_final/1M0/050/HA-backup-installer.png
    • Enter your SQL credentials for your Orion SQL database when prompted.

You can now add the backup server to a pool with your main server or additional polling engine.
