Hello, I'm Radioteacher and I use SolarWinds Orion.
Today we used Product Upgrade Advisory (PUA) to plan a path to NPM 12.
We already have two smaller installs of NPM12 that watch critical systems and report their findings. Now we are upgrading the thirteen module monster.
PUA provided us a 12 step plan. I am not kidding it is 12 step plan to get to NPM12.
Right off the bat we had some issues with our 11.5.3 install messing with the 12 install.
On support now. Repaired current installs and reloaded 11.5.3. After this is done we will try NPM 12 again.
If that is good....only eleven more steps to go.
This is terribly funny when you apply SolarWinds to the 12 steps.
I am just getting back online after vacation. For a few days, we fought with the install of step one from different angles using different levels of support.
In the end, we had to clean out most of the data from the QoE tables in the database. That's OK it will make more QoE data.
All of the work was done on a new server install.
We moved to the new server and finally got the install for NPM 12.0 and 12.0.1.
Patch Manager required some cleanup to install. Once again support came through.
IPAM, UDT, NTA, NCM, VOIP NQM, SAM, and VMan all installed and upgraded without issue.
SMan and SRM needed some time on support to get upgraded and setup.
WPM needed and fix like Patch Manager to get installed.
Still to do...
When I get into to the office on Monday I will open a ticket to see what is up with QoE...it is still broke and we need to do some general cleanup.
I will update this when we are all done.
