Bundled Installs of Solarwinds products
How can Solarwinds do this to us?
I am not able to install NPM 12.4 RC2 as it is bundled with NCM 7.9 RC2. NPM 12.4 can be installed on Windows Server 2012 R2 and NCM only can be installed on Windows Server 2016. As far as I know at least our program we will not be able to install Windows server 2016 until it is properly vetted and STIG'd and approved. A lot of DoD customers require 2FA to meet security requirements and at least for me SAML meets that requirements. Why is Solarwinds bundling the products and not allowing their customers to select and install just one (i.e. NPM 12.4 RC2). This could potentially a big problem for DoD and Federal Government customers moving forward.
Is there a way that the individual products can be selected and installed???
I understand it requires Windows Server 2016. SAML support is something that the organization that I work for desires for 2FA.
The government wheels move slowly to get 2016 approved. I guess I may have to stand up a virtual server to test...
That may be something specific to the RC installer you downloaded, because I installed Sam 6.7 in a client environment this week on server 2012, sql 2016, and it included the updates to orion core that enable SAML. I'm sure support can hunt you down a version of the installer that doesn't include that incompatible ncm release.
