Requirements for the DPA Integration Module
DPA and SolarWinds Platform integration requires DPA 11.1 or later to be installed.
DPAIM can be installed alone or with other SolarWinds Platform products:
- DPAIM is installed automatically when you install SolarWinds SAM.
- To install DPAIM without SolarWinds SAM, use the SolarWinds SolarWinds Platform Installer.
Server recommendations, port requirements, and browser requirements are listed below. For other requirements, see the SolarWinds Platform requirements.
Server recommendations depend on your SolarWinds Platform deployment:
If you are installing DPAIM as a standalone module, you can install it on the same server as DPA.
If you plan to install DPAIM with other SolarWinds Platform products (such as NPM or SAM), SolarWinds recommends that you install DPAIM and other SolarWinds Platform products on a different server than the DPA server.
For more information about DPA server requirements, see the DPA System Requirements.
SolarWinds does not recommend installing an additional polling engine on the DPA server.
In addition to the port requirements necessary for DPA and any other SolarWinds Platform products, integration requires the following ports:
|Port||Protocol||Service or Process||Direction||Encryption||Description|
443 (cloud) or
Windows: Ignite PI Service
This is the default port number of your DPA website and jSWIS proxy.
This port must be open to receive data from the SolarWinds Platform server.
SolarWinds Platform server<![CDATA[ ]]>
|Port||Protocol||Service or Process||Direction||Description|

SolarWinds Information Service
SolarWinds SolarWinds Platform Module Engine
|This port must be open for all SolarWinds Platform product traffic.|
|17778||TCP||SolarWinds Information Service||

- Microsoft Edge
Microsoft Internet Explorer 11
Do not use IE compatibility view. It may cause DPA to function incorrectly.
- Mozilla Firefox: latest stable version
- Google Chrome: latest stable version
- If necessary, install DPAIM:
- DPAIM is automatically installed with SolarWinds SAM.
- To install DPAIM without SAM, use the DPAIM stand-alone installer.
- When DPAIM is installed, set up the integration.
While SAM and DPA can integrate without extra configuration, you can take steps to relate DPA database instances to SAM applications more easily. See Prepare SAM applications for DPAIM integration for more information.
