Download the special installation package for UDT additional Web Consoles (SolarWinds-Orion-UDT-vx.y.z-WebOnly.exe, where x is the major release number, y is the minor release number, and z is the point release number) to the server where you want to install the additional Web Console. TCP port 17777 must be open on both the SolarWinds UDT server and the website.

You need to schedule a maintenance window in which to install the additional Web Console.

  1. Log in to your current SolarWinds UDT additional Web Console server with a Windows administrator account.
  2. Run the SolarWinds UDT installer. The installer automatically detects the SolarWinds NPM Additional Web Console if present.
  3. Review the Welcome page, and then click Next.
  4. Accept the license agreement, and then click Next.
  5. Choose a destination location (or accept the default), and then click Next.
  6. Click Next to start copying files.
  7. Click Finish to complete the installation wizard.
  8. Review the configuration wizard Welcome window, and then click Next.
  9. Specify the information on the Database Settings window, and then click Next.
  10. Specify the database to use, and then click Next. You need to stop polling engines before continuing.
  11. Specify the database account on the Database Account window, and then click Next.
  12. Select the IP address, port, and Website root directory on the Website Settings window, and then click Next.
  13. Review the configuration summary, and then click Next.
  14. Click Finish to complete the configuration wizard.

Copy the default reports

Additional Web Console installations do not include the default UDT reports. To ensure your default UDT reports are available on your Additional Web Console install, copy the Reports folder to your Additional Web Console server. This folder is typically in C:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\Reports.
