DPAIM 11.2 System Requirements

Use the DPA Integration Module (DPAIM) to display SolarWinds DPA data in the Orion Platform. DPAIM 11.2 requires DPA 11.1 or later to be installed.

DPAIM 11.2 can be installed alone or with other Orion Platform products.

  • DPAIM is installed automatically when you install SolarWinds SAM.
  • To install DPAIM 11.2 without SolarWinds SAM, use the SolarWinds Orion Installer.

SolarWinds does not recommend installing an additional polling engine on the DPA server.

If you are installing DPAIM as a standalone module, you can install it on the same server as DPA. However, if you plan to install DPAIM with other Orion Platform product (such as NPM or SAM), we recommend that you install DPAIM and other Orion Platform products on a different server than the DPA server.

While SolarWinds SAM and SolarWinds DPA can integrate without extra configuration, you can take steps to relate SolarWinds DPA database instances to SolarWinds SAM applications more easily. See Prepare SAM applications for integration for more information.

Port and browser requirements are listed below. For other requirements, see the Orion Platform requirements.
