The following error message appears when trying to install on a domain controller:

Error: Cannot Install on a Domain Controller


Any Windows server with the Active Directory role installed


SolarWinds does not support installation on a domain controller.


  1. Remove the Active Directory role from the Windows server.
  2. Try installing on a different server.
