New customer installation

To install SRM using the SolarWinds Orion Installer, see the Orion Platform Products Installation and Upgrade Guide, and refer to the SRM Getting Started Guide to learn about configuring and customizing SRM.

How to upgrade

If you are upgrading from SRM 6.3 or later:

  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.

Starting with SRM 6.9, 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 6.2 or earlier, use this topic to plan and implement an upgrade to the current version of SRM.
