Return to top

For information about installing SCM, review system requirements and use the SolarWinds Orion Installer, which you can download from the SolarWinds Customer Portal. After installation, use the SCM Getting Started Guide and the SCM Administrator Guide to learn about configuring and using SCM.

How to upgrade

With SCM 1.2 and later, you can upgrade your entire Orion deployment, including the main server and all Orion Platform products, from the My Orion Deployment page. Downloading the Orion Installer for future upgrades is no longer necessary.

If you are upgrading from SCM versions earlier than SCM 1.2, use the following procedure:
  1. Use the SolarWinds Orion Installer to simultaneously upgrade one or more Orion Platform products on your main Orion server.
  2. If your scalability engines (additional polling engines, additional web servers, and high availability servers) are able to communicate with the main server, use the centralized upgrade feature to upgrade the rest of your Orion deployment in parallel. For details, see Install or upgrade Orion Platform products.
