This article explains whether it is a good idea or not to install WPM on the same server as other Orion products and why.


All versions of WPM


Generally, it is preferred to install WPM on the same server as other Orion products. All Orion products are designed to be fully compatible with each other and work together. This makes it easier for customers as it means fewer databases and servers to set up.

However, it is a good idea to verify that the version of WPM you are installing is compatible with the versions of the other Orion products you have installed. New version of WPM may not be compatible with older versions of Orion products.

For reference, refer to these resources:

  • The SolarWinds Orion Installer provides an easy-to-follow installation path. The installer checks for product updates, and then presents the installation steps to complete complex upgrades and installations with ease. No need to figure out your upgrade path before you begin - the installer does it for you.
  • The SolarWinds Product Upgrade Advisor is a tool for building upgrade paths. You can enter the currently installed Orion products in your environment, select versions to upgrade, and check the compatibility. The tool checks the versions for compatibility and details the correct upgrade path of products to install in order of products and versions. If a path cannot be determined, the tool provides information.
  • With the upgrade path, use the SolarWinds Upgrade Guide to upgrade one or more products. These guides include preflight prep and gotchas.
