Updated 6/1/2016

The Orion Integration Module for SRM Profiler has been replaced with SRM Orion and is no longer supported.

If you still require SRM Profiler views in Orion, they can use the procedure described in this Thwack article: Adding Profiler Views to Orion.

 

Welcome to SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) Profiler 6.2.3. SRM Profiler monitors storage arrays and helps with locating and resolving storage related issues. SRM Profiler supports multiple devices and vendors with minimal impact to the user environment.

SRM Profiler can be integrated with the SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor Orion Module (SRM) and can share the same license, allowing both products to run together. For more information, see Integrating the SRM Orion module and the SRM Profiler Module.

New Features and Improvements

Storage Resource Monitor Profiler v6.2.3 includes the following new feature:

  • SRM Profiler Administrator Guide migrated from WebWorks Help to HTML5 Help

Storage Resource Monitor Profiler v6.2.1 does not includes any new features

Storage Resource Monitor Profiler v6.2 includes the following new features

  • Internal MDisks are now monitored for IBM SVC and are licensed based on physical disk count. For example, if you have three external MDisks, five internal MDisks, and ten physical disks, the SRM Profiler Module willcount thirteen against your license which is three external MDisks + ten physical disks.
  • A Knowledge Base article on the issue when SRM Profiler using JRE v1.6 is failing to connect the provider with the TLSconfiguration has been created to resolve the issue Assigning TLS Enabled SMIS Arrays to a JRE Upgraded Agent.

Installing this Version

  • SolarWinds strongly suggests that you complete the following tasks before implementing any changes.

Upgrading

New Installation

  • SolarWinds recommends that you do not install SRM Profiler on the same server as the SolarWinds Virtualization Manager or any SolarWinds Orion product (NPM, SAM, SRM Orion Module, etc...)

All Installs and Upgrades

  • Linux installations require the libaio library or the installation will fail. You can install the appropriate libaio package using the associated package manager for your distribution.
  • If you need a temporary license to install an instance of the software in a lab, download an evaluation copy of the latest software from the SolarWinds website. Evaluation copies come with a fully functional 30-day license. Test the change in a lab environment that mimics your production environment.

Licensing this Version of Storage Manager

SRM Profiler can be integrated with the SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor Orion Module (SRM) and can share the same license, If your license is currently applied to the SRM Orion Module and you wish to use the two products integrated with a single license, you must reclaim the license from the SRM Orion Module and apply it to the SRM Profiler Module. For more information, see Reclaim your License from SRM.

For more information on licensing, see Applying your License.

Obtaining Your Key

  1. Log in to your Customer Portal and select License Management.
  2. Navigate to SRM Profiler  v6.2.3 and locate the Activation Key.
  3. Take note of the activation key before you proceed. This is needed after the upgrade completes.

License Deactivation

  • If you are running SRM with a Backup Profiler Evaluation license key, contact SolarWinds support for assistance before upgrading.
  • If you are running SRM with a Storage Manager license, no deactivation is needed.
  • If you are running SRM with a Backup Profiler license key, prior to upgrading your SRM server, you must deactivate your existing Backup Profiler license.
    • If you want to upgrade to SRM 6.2.3 and still use Backup Profiler, SolarWinds recommends that you clone or migrate your current Backup Profiler install to a different server. After Backup Profiler is on a different server, deactivate the Backup Profiler license on the original server and then upgrade to SRM 6.2.3.
  • Perform the following steps to deactivate your Storage Profiler or Backup Profiler license:
  1. Click the Settings icon in the upper right corner of the Storage Manager Website.
  2. Click License Manager.
  3. Click Deactivate.
  • After the license has been deactivated, upgrade to SRM 6.2.3 and then apply your new license key.
  • To deactivate your license from the SRM Orion Module using license manager, see Reclaim your license from SRM.

License Enforcement

  • Expired maintenance.
  • Number of monitored disk exceeds the maximum allowed licensed disk count.
  • Running Storage Manager with a Storage Profiler or Backup Profiler license.

Applying a License with no Internet Access

If your server does not have internet access, complete the offline and manual activation process. For more information, see Licensing the SRM Profile Module.
