Looking to compare latest NPM features with previous versions of NPM?
The NPM new feature summary offers a comparison of new features and improvements offered with this release.
Beginning with SolarWinds Orion 2016.2 products, such as NPM 12.0.1 or SAM 6.3, the web-based License Manager replaces the previous stand-alone Windows License Manager.
With the web-based License Manager, you can manage licenses for Orion Platform products, Additional Polling Engines (APEs), Additional Web Servers (AWS's), and High Availability pools on a single Orion Web Console page.
The web-based License Manager needs the main Orion server to stay up. If the Orion server is down for more than 14 days, your licenses may be invalidated.
The web-based License Manager replaces the stand-alone Windows License Manager in Orion Platform products. If you have upgraded from a previous version of your Orion Platform product, you can still use the stand-alone Windows version. New installs use the web-based License Manager only.
The License Manager reviews and displays any of the following licenses it finds:
All licenses include information about their duration and expiration dates, Orion Platform product version installed, license type and status, and server that is using the license. Activated licenses display the activation key.
