The evaluation version of Virtualization Manager is a full version of the product, functional for 30 days. After the evaluation period, you can easily convert your evaluation license to a production license by obtaining and applying a license key. The VMAN license supports the appliance and integration with the Orion Platform.

To install an evaluation version of VMAN, you follow the requirements, installation steps, and configurations used for a full license version:

  • The VMAN evaluation can be integrated with an existing Orion Platform environment
  • The existing environment must have a full or evaluation version of NPM, SAM, or NCM installed
  • Create or modify accounts and permissions as required for VMAN
  • For evaluations only, you can integrate a VMAN appliance to Orion Platform installed on the following OS versions:
    Evaluation and Production Environments Evaluation Environments Only

    Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

    Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2

    Windows Server 2016

    Windows 7 SP1

    Windows 8 (except Standard edition)

    Windows 8.1 (except Standard edition)

    Windows 8.1 Update 1 (except Standard edition)

    Windows 10

To evaluate and experience VMAN in a standalone Orion Platform, deploy the VMAN appliance and Virtual Infrastructure Monitor (VIM) standalone installation. VIM is a standalone Orion Platform included with the VMAN evaluation installation file.

For instructions to deploy an evaluation using Virtual Infrastructure Monitor, see the SolarWinds Virtualization Manager Administrator Guide.
