Welcome to SolarWinds Storage Manager Version 6.0. Storage Manager leverages an intuitive point-and-click interface that provides a unified monitoring view of all the layers in your storage stack. By continuously scanning the network, Storage Manager provides storage performance data, automates storage capacity planning, maps VMs to physical storage and allows end-to-end visibility, making administration more efficient.
Storage Manager 6.0 comes with an additional feature called the Storage Resource Monitor Orion Module. The SRM Orion Module is a separate install and can be downloaded from your customer portal. The SRM Orion Module is a new native-Orion module that allows you to monitor, report and receive alerts on your SAN and NAS devices in a single window. The SRM Orion Module can be integrated with Storage Manager sharing the same license and allowing both product to run together. For more information, see "Introduction to Storage Resource Monitor."
Warnings: SolarWinds suggests that you complete the following tasks before implementing any changes:
New licenses keys are required when installing Storage Manager 6.0. The license keys are available in your Customer Portal. SolarWinds recommends that you get your key from the Customer Portal before proceeding with the installation. If you do not find your key in the Customer Portal, contact our customer service team.
If you are upgrading from a release that is version 5.6.2 or newer, you can upgrade straight to Storage Manager 6.0.
Storage Manager will enforce licensing during the upgrade. The installation will abort if any of the following conditions are detected:
The SRM Orion Module uses the SolarWinds License Manager. This is a free utility that manages your SolarWinds Licenses. For complete instructions on licensing, see "Licensing the SRM Orion Module
