Use this information if you are using NCM 7.6 or earlier. For NCM 7.7 and later versions, use the SolarWinds Orion Installer to install an additional web console.

If you are upgrading to SolarWinds NCM 7.5, before you attempt to install an additional web console on another server, you must first upgrade the main server.

  1. Visit the Customer Portal and download the SolarWinds-Orion_WebOnly.exe file.
  2. Launch the SolarWinds-Orion_WebOnly.exe file from the download location on the server that will host your additional website.
  3. Click Next on the Welcome screen.
