Are you looking to install SLX?
The following table lists minimum hardware requirements and recommendations for your Orion system.
Hardware requirements are listed by SolarWinds NPM license level.
SL100, SL250, SL500
For production environments, quad core is recommended.
Do not enable Physical Address Extension (PAE).
Thank you for your quick reply D09H :-)
Yes SLX. I have the requirements and I wanted to know what type of application is solarinds.....meaning, single thread or multithread...We cannot assign more then 2.1GHZ....
I am presently creating a lab env. until the purchase is made in the next couple of weeks.
Installed NPM on a VM and NCM also on the same VM. I am trying to install SAM too but it is telling me that it is installed.....I dont see it though...
Should I have installed SAM first?

We are running 2.4s in our environment without issue. Like you, we don't have 3.0s available. The speed is a recommendation, but doesn't keep you from continuing on with the install.
Regarding installing SAM first, it shouldn't matter on a fresh install. NPM should have laid down the Orion core modules. Make sure that the version of NPM and SAM you are trying to install are compatible.
You see the link you sent me does not mention that a Quad 3.GHZ is a minum requirement. Yet in other documentation, in the filed for SLX installation...it is.
So is it or Not ? :-)))) We have all licences set ALX for SAM, NPM, NCM DPA, SRM and Patch Manager and also WHD.
We need to make sure that we have at least the minimum reqs at the begining.....
Great So the 2.1.GHZ will be ok. !!!!
I am trying to install SAM on a VM where i installed NPM then NCM....I trying SAM but it gives me the following error:
All installations will be done with the Offlineinstaller files cause site does not access the internet.
and here I show you that it is NOT installed. What could I be doing wrong ?
Looks like you have NPM 12.1 installed. What version of NCM is installed and what version of SAM are you trying to install? You mention DPA, VMAN, and SRM, but I don't see them in your screenshot. Are they not yet installed?
I would go to the upgrade advisor and make sure the versions you are putting in play nicely with each other.
I haven't messed with NPM 12.2, but I think it's compatible with SAM 6.5 versus the 6.4 you have listed. You may need to either go back and install NPM 12.1 or wait for 6.5 to be released.
NPM 12.2 is compatible with SAM 6.4 as SAM 6.5 has not been released yet.
Can you install 6.4 on top of 12.2? Or do you have to install 12.1 and 6.4 and then upgrade to 12.2?
You can install on top of 12.2
NPM 12.2 is compatible with the following modules:
DPAIM: 10.2, 11.0, 11.0.1, 11.1
FSM: 6.6.7, 6.6.8
MA: 7.1, 8.0, 8.0.1, 8.1
PM: 2.1.5, 2.1.6
SRM: 6.3, 6.4, 6.5
Toolset: 11.0.3, 11.0.6
ToolsetWeb: 11.0.3, 11.0.5, 11.0.6
VIM: 7.0, 7.1, 8.0
Downgrading is not a possibility with solarwinds....It would then be faster to uninstall and re-install NPM and NCM
Thanks for your time !
Lowest I've run before is 2.2 GHz on the CPU - just make sure you have additional cores available for assignment if you need the extra power. In most cases this will get you where you want to go. you will still get the message on the install, but trend your systems to make sure they are not sucking up all the resources available and you see slow response - adding nodes/polling/page loads.
6 Cores - 2.2 GHz (we started with 4 cores, saw the constant spikes and upped it to 6 and it ran fine)
24 GB RAM
to run NPM 12.1, NCM 7.1 and SAM 6.3 (NCM versioning might be slightly off)
Thanks to ALL of you that helped guide me....:-)
I realize this post is a couple days old and I'm late to the game, but in my environment, I also only have 2.1GHz CPUs with NPM SLX and other modules. Instead of only providing 4 vCPUs, we added 8 and the system runs great on all the latest module version. So while my posting is late, at least you can take comfort in knowing you aren't alone. And I also saw the same install warnings, but those warnings are based on the recommendations in the documentation...everything runs fine.
