Updated 7/28/2017

The Orion Integration Module for SRM Profiler is no longer supported. If you still require SRM Profiler views in Orion, you can use the procedure described in this Thwack article: Adding Profiler Views to Orion.

Welcome to SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) Profiler 6.2.4. SRM Profiler monitors storage arrays and helps locate and resolve 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 (SRM) and can share the same license, allowing both products to run together. For more information, see Use SRM with SRM Profiler. 

New features and improvements

SRM Profiler v6.2.4 includes the following new features:

  • SRM Profiler integrates with SRM 6.4.
  • Dell EMC Isilon OneFS version 8 is now supported.

    If you have version 7 and version 8 devices in your environment, you must use two agents - one for version 7 devices and the other for version 8 devices.

  • SRM Profiler server runs under JRE 8.
  • SRM Profiler supports TLS 1.2.

SRM Profiler v6.2.3 included the following new feature:

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

SRM Profiler v6.2.1 did not include any new features.

SRM Profiler v6.2 included 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 will count thirteen against your license which is three external MDisks + ten physical disks.
  • The Knowledge Base article, Assigning TLS Enabled SMIS Arrays to a JRE Upgraded Agent has been created regarding the issue when SRM Profiler using JRE v1.6 is failing to connect the provider with the TLS configuration.

Install this version

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

Upgrade

You must deactivate your license and park it on the customer portal before upgrading to SRM 6.4.2. You should then reactivate after the upgrade is complete.

  • Ensure you have a backup copy of your SRM database
  • Ensure that your environment meets the server requirements

New installation

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

All installs and upgrades

  • Linux installations require the libaio library. 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.

License SRM Profiler

To license SRM Profiler:

  1. Log into the SRM Profiler.
  2. Navigate to Settings > License Manager.

  3. Click Enter Activation Key.
  4. Enter the Activation Key, click Next, complete the Registration pane, and follow the instructions on the screen.

Apply a license with no internet access

If your server does not have internet access, complete the offline and manual activation process.

  1. Log into the SRM Profiler.
  2. Navigate to Settings > License Manager.
  3. Click Enter Activation Key.
  4. Select This server does not have internet access... and click Next.
  5. Follow the Activation instructions displayed on the screen.

Integrate SRM Profiler with SRM

SRM Profiler can be integrated with SRM and can share the same license. For information, see Use SRM with SRM Profiler, If your license is currently applied to the SRM Orion Module and you want to use the two products integrated with a single license, you must reclaim the license from SRM and apply it to SRM Profiler. For more information, see Reclaim your license from SRM.

Obtain your activation key

  1. Log in to your Customer Portal and select License Management.
  2. Navigate to SRM Profiler  v6.2.4 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 Profiler with a Backup Profiler Evaluation license key, contact SolarWinds support for assistance before upgrading.
  • If you are running SRM Profiler with a SRM Profiler or Storage Manager (STM)  license, no deactivation is needed.
  • If you are running SRM Profiler 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 Profiler 6.2.4 and still use Backup Profiler, SolarWinds recommends 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 6.2.4.
  • Perform the following steps to deactivate your SRM 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 Profiler 6.2.4 and then apply your new license key.
  • To deactivate your license from SRM  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 SRM with a Storage Profiler or Backup Profiler license.
