TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 Compatibility with Orion

Table of contents

Updated July 23, 2018


The following details the level of support of Transport Layer Security (TLS) that the SolarWinds Orion Platform requires to be enabled for each version.


All versions of SAM


SAM 6.2.3 and earlier

 TLS 1.0 must be enabled for these versions. If using SAM 6.2.3 or earlier with Framework .NET 4.6.x, SolarWinds recommends upgrading to a later SAM releases with full support for .NET 4.6.x.


SAM 6.2.4

TLS 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 must be enabled on the Orion Server and all Polling Engines for these versions.


SAM 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, 6.5, and 6.6 supports TLS 1.1 and 1.2

SAM can fall back to TLS 1.1 or  TLS 1.0 for HTTPS website polling and SSL Certificate monitoring if the later version is not working properly in your environment.


SAM 6.6.1

SAM 6.6.1 enables SAM to run on TLS 1.2 only to support organizations that require that type of delivery for security and compliance reasons. See TLS compatibility with Orion Platform products for details.
