Environment

VNMQ - All Version

 

Steps

 

To install standalone SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager:

1. Log on as an administrator to the server you will use to monitor your IP SLA network.

2. If you downloaded the product from the SolarWinds website, navigate to your download location and launch the executable. You may need to run the executable as an Administrator.

3. If you received physical media, browse to the executable file, and then launch the executable. You may need to run the executable as an Administrator.

4. If you are prompted to install requirements, click Install, and then complete the installation, including a reboot, if required.

 

Notes:

• Downloading and installing Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 may take more than 20 minutes, depending on your existing system configuration.

• If a reboot is required, after restart, click Install to resume installation, and then click Next on the Welcome window.

 

5. If you want to use the Orion Improvement Program to send anonymous data about your product usage to SolarWinds, click Yes, send data.

Note: This selection cannot be changed later.

 

8. If the Setup Wizard detects that Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is not installed, select Suspend installation to manually install IIS, click Finish, quit setup, and then install IIS.

 

Note: The Web Console requires that Microsoft IIS is installed on the VoIP and Network Quality Manager server. If you do not install IIS at this point, you must install IIS later, and then configure a website for the Web Console to use.

11. If you want to install to a destination folder other than the default given, click Browse, select an installation folder, and then click OK.

Note: If you are creating a new SQL account for use with VoIP and Network Quality Manager, the account must be assigned the securityadmin server role.

 

i. If you want the polling engine and web console to use an existing SQL account for accessing the database, select the existing account, provide the appropriate password, and then click Next.

j. Provide the IP address of the server used for the web console.

 

Note: Consider retaining the default IP address setting of All Unassigned, unless your environment requires the designation of a specific IP address for your Web Console.

 

k. Specify both the port through which you want to access the web console and the volume and folder in which you want to install the web console files, and then click Next.

 

Note: If you specify any port other than 8787, the default port for evaluations, you must include that port in the URL used to access the web console.

For example, if you specify an IP address of 192.168.0.3 and port 8080, the URL used to access the web console is http://192.168.0.3:8080.

 

l. If you are prompted to create a new directory, click Yes.

m. If you are prompted to create a new website, click Yes.
