SolarWinds Features Needing Updates After Hardening

With the new rules from DHS Emergency Directive 21-01 that at least Federal agencies must follow, I wanted that I to start a thread where we can consolidate feature upgrades needed to maintain functionality. If you find something, post it here. If someone creates a feature request to remedy functionality lost due to the required hardening, post a link here so the Federal & Government community can know about it and vote.

One that I noted is the requirement that, "The SolarWinds Orion server, the web server, and the database server instances must be installed on separate and dedicated hosts."  That would seem to preclude using the website on the main Orion® server to run a centralized upgrade. I submitted a feature request to support running centralized upgrades from an AWS.

  • I don't know if it is possible to install the primary polling engine without the web site, but this could potentially be mitigated by only allowing your Orion users to reach the additional web server (by using network and Windows firewall rules, and/or IP restrictions in IIS). I wonder if this would satisfy the directive for agencies.
