Upgrade Additional Polling Engines and Additional Web Servers for SAM

If deploying SAM 6.6 or later into an existing SolarWinds environment that uses Additional Polling Engines (APEs) or Additional Web Servers (AWS), you can use the SolarWinds Orion Installer to upgrade scalability engines, including APEs, AWS, and High Availability backup servers.

If you are running an earlier version of SAM that consumes Orion Platform 2017 MSP2 or earlier, you can install or upgrade the scalability engines using one of the following installers:

  • (Recommended) The Orion Scalability Engine Installer available in the Orion Web Console. This installer consumes approximately 6 MB.
  • Orion Systems Management Bundle installer. This installed consumes about 1.64 GB on your hard drive.

Both options are available in the SolarWinds Customer Portal, as described in these articles:
