Network Configuration Manager Getting Started Guide
Welcome to the SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM) Getting Started Guide. This guide takes you from installation to implementation. Ensure your long term success with SolarWinds NCM by following the guidelines described in this guide. Depending on your workload, getting started with NCM should take you one week or less.
Existing customers: Following the recommendations in this guide ensures your system capabilities are appropriate and your production environment is sized correctly. Minimum system requirements used during evaluation are not sufficient for a production environment. Access your licensed software from the SolarWinds Customer Portal. If you need implementation help, contact our Support Geeks. Read this SolarWinds Customer Support article to learn how to properly open a support case and get your case the right level of visibility.
Evaluators: If you are evaluating SolarWinds NCM, download a free 30-day evaluation. The evaluation version of SolarWinds NCM is a full version of the product, functional for 30 days. After the evaluation period, you can easily convert your evaluation license to a production license by obtaining and applying a license key. If you need assistance with your evaluation, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This getting started guide assumes that you have:
