I see there is an AMI for DPA in the AWS Community Market place. This seems to be a user submitted AMI [SolarWinds_DPA_9.1 (Build 9.1.85_56)]. However, there is also mention of an AMI on the solarwinds site here:
So.. does anyone know if this is a SolarWinds official AMI, or is it a user submitted one?
I have been asking Solarwinds for several days, but have yet to hear back.
thanks, so does this mean that this is the actual AMI provided by Solarwinds? If so, do you know why it appears in the Community AMI section, and not the AWS Marketplace section?
Might sound like an odd question, but I need to be sure of the author for security reasons.
Here are some instructions on how to launch this community AMI
And here is an FAQ document you might find interesting
The AMI in the community section is from SolarWinds. We are looking heavily at adding this to the marketplace but have some loops we have to close before that happens. I would be happy to let you know when/If we add an AMI to the marketplace!!
thanks for confirming. Sadly, our company security policy prohibits the use of community AMIs. Hopefully you can get this into the AWS Marketplace soon... i.e very soon as I am needing to build this within a few days.
Will likely have to stand up a EC2 instance and install manually for now.
