Before you install SolarWinds SRM, complete the pre-installation checklist below. This checklist helps you:

  • Verify that system requirements are met, all required software is installed, and required roles and features are enabled.
  • Gather the information required to complete the installation.

A dedicated virtual 1GBE NIC is required. Be advised that resource contention could occur in a virtual environment if you have not dedicated physical resources to your Orion Application server virtual machine.

Check for antivirus software.

Determine if any antivirus software is installed on the server or servers where you plan to install Orion. To ensure the installation goes smoothly, exclude the SolarWinds directory. For example, on Windows Server 2012 R2, exclude C:/ProgramData/SolarWinds/.

Do not exclude executable files. SolarWinds assumes that C:/ is the default volume.

Check system requirements, and identify system resources on which you install the Orion application server and database.

Confirm that your installation environment meets the minimum system requirements.

Use the Local Administrator Account for installation. The Local Administrator Account is not the same as a domain account with local admin rights. A domain account is subject to your domain group policies.

Ensure you have the correct version of the installation. If your server has access to the Internet, use the online version of the installation. If the server does not have access to the Internet, use the offline version of the installation.

Obtain the SQL Server user name and password of a SQL Server database account with sysadmin rights. This may be your SA account. Contact your SQL Database Administrator for this information. Orion uses this account to create its database and to create a new user with read/write access and ownership over its own database.

If SolarWinds SRM is the first Orion Platform product that you are installing, ensure that you prepare the Orion SQL Server database before you install SRM.

Determine if your license includes additional polling engines. If it does, refer to install an additional polling engine. Install the additional polling engine after installing SolarWinds SRM on the main polling engine.
Determine if your license includes an additional web server. If it does, refer to install an additional web server. Install the additional web server after installing SolarWinds SRM on the main polling engine.
