Install or Upgrade WPM

Current version: WPM 2024.1.1

Released: April 18, 2024

Review the WPM release notes and system requirements before installing or upgrading WPM.

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.

Install WPM

Upgrade WPM

If you are on a version earlier than WPM 2020.2.6, first upgrade to 2020.2.6 and then upgrade to 2024.1.1.

You can upgrade WPM directly from the SolarWinds Platform Web Console (Settings > My Deployment). Downloading the SolarWinds Installer is no longer necessary.

After upgrading WPM on the SolarWinds Platform server, be sure to upgrade any WPM Recorders and WPM Players installed on remote systems. See Deploy WPM to remote systems in the WPM Getting Started Guide.

Migrate WPM

  • Do you need to move your WPM polling engines or database to a different server? See the Migration Guide. Be sure to update SEUM agents to point to the new EngineIDs, as described here.
