The evaluation version of this product is a full version of the product, functional for 30 days. If you evaluate SolarWinds UDT on Windows Server operating system, you can easily convert your evaluation license to a production license by obtaining and applying a license key.

To update your license, contact SolarWinds sales to purchase a full license of the product. For Orion products, access the License Manager to update the license with the purchased key. For details, see Activate licenses.

For evaluation installations only, you can install the Orion server and the Microsoft® SQL Server® database on the same machine. The installer automatically installs SQL Server 2014. You can use that database, or configure the server to use another MS SQL database.

  • Do not use MS SQL Server Express in a production deployment.
  • Before you install SQL Express 2014 on the same computer as the Orion server, ensure .NET 3.5 is installed.

To use a separate Microsoft SQL Server database, or if you are installing this product into the production deployment of an existing Orion Platform, see Multi-module system guidelines.

For evaluation installations only, installation on a desktop operating system is possible, but not supported. This product is intended for use in a production environment that meets system requirements.
