Return to top

DPAIM can be installed in either of the following ways:

  • With SolarWinds SAM

    DPAIM is automatically installed with SolarWinds SAM. If you have SAM, all you have to do is set up the integration module.

    To install SAM, use the SolarWinds Platform Installer.

  • Standalone (SAM not required)

    If you do not plan to install SAM, download and run the SolarWinds Platform Installer to install DPAIM as a separate product. You can install DPAIM alone, or you can install DPAIM with other SolarWinds Platform products such as SolarWinds SRM.

After you install DPAIM, you must set up the DPA Integration Module.

How to upgrade

Use the SolarWinds Platform Installer to upgrade DPAIM and any other (Undefined variable: Core_var.Product_family).

You can upgrade your entire SolarWinds Platform deployment from the My Deployment page. Downloading the SolarWinds Platform Installer is no longer necessary.
