SCM Installation Guide
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.
As a SolarWinds Platform product, Server Configuration Monitor (SCM) uses the SolarWinds Platform Installer for on premises installations. The Orion Installer provides an easy-to-follow installation path for your environment and guides you through product installation. Be sure to check the SCM system requirements before you install.
For information on how SCM is licensed, see the SCM licensing model.
