Install or Upgrade Server Configuration Monitor
This guide walks new Server Configuration Monitor (SCM) users through the SCM installation process and provides the step-by-step upgrade process for those who are ready to move to a newer version of SCM.
SolarWinds strongly recommends that you install the SolarWinds Platform on a server that is neither public, nor internet-facing. To learn about best practices for configuring your SolarWinds Platform installation securely, see Secure Configuration for the SolarWinds Platform.
For information about installing Server Configuration Monitor, see the SolarWinds Installer.
To deploy SCM in the cloud, see the following topics:
- Deploy SolarWinds Platform products to Amazon Web Services
- Deploy SolarWinds Platform products to Microsoft Azure
- Install SolarWinds Platform products using Azure Marketplace
Use the SolarWinds Installer to upgrade your entire SolarWinds Platform (formerly known as Orion Platform) deployment, including any scalability engines.
You can upgrade your entire deployment from the My Deployment page (Settings > My Deployment).
For details, see Install or upgrade SolarWinds Platform products.
- To upgrade your scalability engines (Additional Polling Engines, Additional Web Servers, High Availability servers), see Options for upgrading scalability engines.
Do you need to move your SCM polling engines or database to a different server? See the SolarWinds Migration Guide.
