Upgrade DPA on an Azure VM

If you are upgrading from DPA 2022.3 and you configured DPA 2022.3 for SAML authentication, be aware that DPA 2022.4 and later include changes to the SAML configuration. After the upgrade, no one will be able to log in with SAML until you update the configuration.

  • Before you upgrade, make sure you have a local login available.

  • After the upgrade, log in as a local user and complete the steps under "SAML configuration changes" in the DPA 2022.4 Release Notes to update the SAML configuration.

  1. Review the upgrade checklist and prepare your environment.
  2. Open a remote desktop session and log in to your DPA instance in the Azure Marketplace.
  3. Download the most recent version of DPA from the SolarWinds Customer Portal.
  4. Run the installer, and follow the wizard.
