Welcome to SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) Version 6.1.1. SRM monitors storage arrays and helps with locating and resolving storage related issues. SRM supports multiple devices and vendors with minimal impact to the user environment.
Storage Resource Monitor 6.1.1 consists of Profiler and the SRM Orion Module. The SRM Orion Module is a separate installation and can be downloaded from your customer portal. The SRM Orion Module is a native-Orion module that allows you to monitor, report and receive alerts on your Storage Area Network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices in a single window. The SRM Orion Module can be integrated with the Profiler Module sharing the same license and allowing both products to run together. For more information, see Introduction to Storage Resource Monitor and Integrating the SRM Orion module and the SRM Profiler Module.
Note: For versions prior to SRM 6.0, the SRM Profiler Module was called Storage Manager.
The SRM Orion Module Version 6.1.1 includes 6.1 fixes and Orion Platform 2015.1.2 fixes
If you are upgrading to SRM 6.1.1 from Storage Manager 5.7.1 or earlier, the following items apply:
Warning: SolarWinds recommends that you complete the following tasks before implementing any changes:
There are two installers, one each for the SRM Orion Module (which installs Storage Resource Monitor) and the SRM Profiler Module (formerly, Storage Manager or STM). If you install the SRM Orion Module or the SRM Profiler Module, the license key in your customer portal will license the appropriate product version installed, the SRM Orion Module or the SRM Profiler Module.
If your license is currently applied to the SRM Orion Module and you wish to use the two products (SRM Profiler Module and SRM Orion Module) 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 Reclaiming your License from the SRM Orion Module.
If you are upgrading from SRM Orion Module 6.1, you can upgrade straight to Storage Resource Monitor 6.1.1.
For more information on licensing, see Applying your License.
After the license has been deactivated, upgrade to SRM 6.1.1 and then apply your new license key.
To deactivate your license from the SRM Orion Module using license manager, see Deactivating your license from the SRM Orion Module using license manager.
SRM enforces licensing during the upgrade. The installation aborts 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.
