New customer installation

Return to top

DPAIM can be installed in either of the following ways:

  • With SolarWinds SAM

    DPAIM is automatically installed with SolarWinds SAM 6.2.1 or later. If you have SAM 6.2.1 or later, you do not need to install DPAIM. All you have to do is set up the integration module.

    To install SAM, use the SolarWinds Orion Installer.

  • Standalone (SAM not required)

    If you do not plan to install SAM, download and run the SolarWinds Orion Installer to install DPAIM as a separate product. You can install DPAIM alone, or you can install DPAIM with other Orion Platform products such as SolarWinds SRM.

After you install DPAIM, you must set up the DPA Integration Module.

How to upgrade

Use the SolarWinds Orion Installer to upgrade DPAIM and any other Orion Platform products.


Known issues

Return to top

Some DPA data is not displayed correctly in PerfStack
Issue: DPA data that represents a time series and can include multiple metrics is not displayed correctly in PerfStack charts. What should be shown as stacked graphs is displayed as a single line. 
Resolution/Work-around: None. 

 

Date range is one day behind on Wait Time resources

Issue: The date on Wait Time Trends resources is one day behind for environments where the DPA and Orion servers are in different time zones. The affected resources are:

  • All Instances with the Highest Wait Times
  • Instances with the Highest Wait Times
  • Greatest Downward Wait Time Trends
  • Greatest Upward Wait Time Trends
Resolution/Work-around:Set the DPA and Orion servers to the same time zone. 

 

DPAIM stops working after failover
Issue: If you have High Availability configured, the DPA Integration Module stops working when a failover occurs after you re-integrate with a previously integrated DPA server.
Resolution/Work-around: Re-integrate the DPA server. 

 

Report resource fails to initialize if any DPA server is down

Issue: If you attempt to create or run a report that includes DPA resources and any integrated DPA server is down, the following error is returned:

Report resource failed to properly initialize.

Resolution/Work-around: To avoid this error, ensure that all integrated servers are up before creating or running reports that include information from DPA. Alternatively, remove the integration for a server and reintegrate it later.
