For those of you who are asking "What's a Dev Assisted Upgrade"? Well I'm happy to answer.

  • It's Free! (For active maintenance customers)
  • You and your team will be upgrading to an available Release Candidate, with a team of SolarWinds experts watching on the call and ready to step in if something goes wrong.
  • You get THWACK points.
  • If you have any questions, my team and I are ready to assist with questions prior and after the upgrade.
  • Dev Assisted Upgrade is a time limited program, with first come, first serve slots. If you aren't able to participate in this round, we will notify you for the next round of available slots.

Re: Recruiting for DPA Release Candidate Dev Assisted Upgrade

Are you looking to schedule any more of these?  I would love to upgrade our DPA server to the newest version. I was trying to do it today, but I need an offline installer because the VLAN where our DPA server sits does not have access to the internet.

Ben,

DPA 12.1 officially went live earlier this morning, so no need for the RC as you can download the GA version. I assume you can download to a thumb drive and get it to your DPA server. When you upgrade, let us know what you think.

So before we had to download the full offline installer.  Right now when I go to the SolarWinds Customer Portal, I'm not seeing 12.1 listed for offline installers.

The version you show in your screenshot is for the DPA integration module (DPAIM). Are you looking for DPAIM or DPA proper?

You should be seeing this - make sure you select it in the dropdowns on the top.  If not, what is you SWID?

Yeah, I can see those but those are the online installer that reaches out to the internet to grab the rest of the install isn't it?

If you go to the drop down under "Database performance analyzer integration module, you see the second option is "Offline installation".  That drop down stops at 11.1.1.

DPA proper only comes in offline, there is no online option.

DPAIM is online/offline like other Orion based products.

DPA downloads include the entire product and it does not reach out to internet to get the rest of the things.
