Installation or upgrade

For new SolarWinds Platform deployments, you can download the installation file from the product page on https://www.solarwinds.com or from the Customer Portal. For more information, see Get the installer.

If you have an existing SolarWinds Platform deployment, DPAIM is installed with other platform modules. To begin using it, set up the DPA Integration Module.

For upgrades, go to Settings > My Deployment to initiate the upgrade. The SolarWinds Installer upgrades your entire deployment (all SolarWinds Platform products and any scalability engines).

For more information, see the SolarWinds Platform Product Installation and Upgrade Guide.

Supported upgrade paths to 2024.1:

Version 2024.1 is the last release that will support a direct upgrade from 2020.2.1 or 2020.2.4. If you choose to stay on 2020.2.1 or 2020.2.4, you will be required to upgrade to 2024.1 before you can upgrade to a later release.
