DPAIM 2020.2 System Requirements
Release date: June 4, 2020
SolarWinds strongly recommends that you install the Orion Platform on a server that is neither public, nor internet-facing. To learn about best practices for configuring your Orion Platform installation securely, see Secure Configuration for the SolarWinds Platform.
Use the DPA Integration Module (DPAIM) to display SolarWinds DPA data in the Orion Platform. DPAIM 2020.2 requires DPA 2020.2 to be installed.
DPAIM 2020.2 can be installed alone or with other Orion Platform products.
- DPAIM is installed automatically when you install SolarWinds SAM.
- To install DPAIM 2020.2 without SolarWinds SAM, use the SolarWinds Orion Installer.
SolarWinds does not recommend installing an additional polling engine on the DPA server.
If you are installing DPAIM as a standalone module, you can install it on the same server as DPA. However, if you plan to install DPAIM with other Orion Platform product (such as NPM or SAM), we recommend that you install DPAIM and other Orion Platform products on a different server than the DPA server.
While SolarWinds SAM and SolarWinds DPA can integrate without extra configuration, you can take steps to relate SolarWinds DPA database instances to SolarWinds SAM applications more easily. See Prepare SAM applications for integration for more information.
Port and browser requirements are listed below. For other requirements, see the Orion Platform requirements.
In addition to the port requirements necessary for DPA and any other Orion Platform products, integration requires the following ports.
SolarWinds does not recommend the use of HTTP (Port 80). Please use HTTPS (Port 443) to ensure that any web-related connections are secure.
