Requirements for the DPA Integration Module

DPA and Orion Platform integration requires DPA 11.1 or later to be installed.

DPAIM can be installed alone or with other Orion Platform products:

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

Server recommendations, port requirements, and browser requirements are listed below. For other requirements, see the Orion Platform requirements.

Server recommendations

Server recommendations depend on your Orion 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 Orion Platform products (such as NPM or SAM), SolarWinds recommends that you install DPAIM and other Orion 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.

Port requirements

In addition to the port requirements necessary for DPA and any other Orion Platform products, integration requires the following ports:

DPA server

Next steps

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.
