          Hello,

          It should a be very simple Upgrade from Orion 8.5.1 to Orion 9,

          it is just in in-place install over the existing Orion.

           

          Login to your Customer Portal,

          Download Orion 9, also double Check that you have an Orion 9 License available.

           

          Make sure you have local admin rights on the box.

          Run the Orion 9 Install, Configuration Wizard will run,

          Keep all defaults it asks you bar the first screen,

          I suggest here you use your SQL Server "SA" Username and Password,

          "SolarwindsNPM" account is fine to use on second screen though.

           

          I recommend backing up the following before upgrading:

          Backup current SQL Database before upgrading.

          Backup C:\Program Files\Solarwinds\Maps

          Backup C:\Program Files\Solarwinds\Reports Folders.

           

          If you have any issues, please log a Support Ticket.

          Hope it all goes well and you enjoy all the new features Orion 9 has to Offer.
