How to upgrade

Use the SolarWinds Installer to upgrade your entire SolarWinds Platform deployment (all SolarWinds Platform products and any scalability engines) to the current versions.

  • You must be on NTA 2020.2.1 or later to upgrade to NTA 2022.4. If you are on NTA 2020.2 or earlier, first upgrade to 2020.2.6 and then upgrade to 2022.4.

  • The installation path for the NetFlow service has changed. If the NetFlow Service stops receiving packets after you upgrade from 2020.2.6 to 2022.4, verify the program path is correct: C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\NetFlowService.exe.

If you are upgrading from NTA 4.6 or later, you can upgrade your entire SolarWinds Platform deployment from the My Deployment page. Downloading the SolarWinds Installer is no longer necessary.
