    Full Upgrade to latest - Questions

    jasonbishop

      Hello Community!

       

      Hi.  Fairly new Solarwinds customer here.  After a couple of months of testing in development, we now have a full production environment setup, and teams are slowing adding all components for monitoring.

      I've noticed that almost a couple of weeks ago, newer updates were released for the new PerfStack.  It looks great!  I am entitled for these updates and would like to go about a full upgrade.  I'm just looking for some insight, and step-by-step etc. as to go about it.  It tooks quite awhile to get our production environment setup - we did run into several issues that support has helped me fix, and it's all up and running, so where I'm a fairly new customer, I'm a little reluctant to perform a huge upgrade without first getting some insight, for you all, and your experiences etc.

       

      Here is my current setup, along with versions:

       

      Main Orion Server: (1)

      Orion Platform
      Version

      2016.2.100

      Network Configuration Manager
      Version7.5.1
      Server & Application Monitor
      Version6.3.0
      Network Performance Monitor
      Version12.0.1
      Virtual Infrastructure Monitor
      Version7.0.0
      Storage Resource Monitor
      Version6.3.0
      NetFlow Traffic Analyzer
      Version4.2.1
      NetPath
      Version

      1.0.1

       

      Additional Poller:(1)

      Orion Platform
      Version2016.2.100

       

      Additional Web Server: (1)

      (Same as Main Orion Server)

       

      Database Details:

      Microsoft SQL Server 2014 (SP2-CU3) Standard Edition.

       

      So as of prior to the updates released on March 17th, we currently had the latest versions of the modules.

       

      I have read the "Upgrade Multiple SolarWinds Products" guide, and also ran through the SolarWinds Product Upgrade Advisor (which stated no problems, and provided a step-by-step of which modules to upgrade first).

       

      Has anyone upgraded from the the module versions I have, to the newest/latest?  Any issues?

       

      Also, if you guys/gals were performing these upgrades, what would be your course of action?

       

      Thanks,

      Jason
