Install SRM Profiler server on Windows

Updated: June 16, 2017

Before Installing:

  • Ensure you have downloaded the correct installer.
  • Close any service window(s). Installation will not work properly if you leave this window open.
  • Stop your anti-virus software. Some anti-virus software packages can interfere with the product installation.
  • Back up the SRM Profiler database. See Backing up the SRM Profiler database for more information.
  • Uninstall any previous instances of the MariaDB or MySQL. Only one instance of the MariaDB is supported on the SRM Profiler server.
    • SRM Profiler versions 5.6 and newer use MariaDB. For previous versions, MySQL is used.
    • For versions prior to 5.6, substitute MySQL for MariaDB.

All SRM Profiler binary and data files are located under the installation directory. When installing, select a directory located on a partition with enough space (at least 40 GB) to accommodate the SRM Profiler database over time.

SolarWinds SRM Profiler cannot be installed on the same server as SolarWinds Virtualization Manager.
