The upgrade process is quite straight forward.
The High level tasks are:
- Download the New Versions of NPM and IPAM from your Solarwinds customer portal
- Backup NPM database using either Database manager or SQL Management Studio
- Backup NPM or if Virtual Machine take a snapshot
- Upgrade NPM
- Upgrade IPAM
As a rule NPM should be always ungraded 1st.
The Installer first extracts the files necessary to compete the upgrade and then launches an instance of the Configuration Wizard which does the upgrade.
When running the upgrade we recommend logging on as local admin and not a domain account with local admin privileges. Also right clicking the installer and running as administrator.
The database configuration details will automatically be populated into the configuration wizard but it would be beneficial to know what these are in advance to confirm all is well along the way. Database Server Name, Solarwinds DB Name, Solarwinds DB User Name etc
Depending on database size, server hardware etc the process could take up to 90 minutes.
The process is then repeated for IPAM,
Thanks Tony. I appreciate it.
I would read a little more about and the do it. I'm new with the system and there is someone else with this administration, but I should take care of it.
I downloaded the NPM trial version and It is 10.4.2, so why the update in the licensed version says available update 10.4.1 and no 10.4.2? should it perform two updates of the NPM?
I'll verify if there is something else instaled in th server. at bottom of the page it show:
IPAM 3.0, NPM 10.3, NTA 3.10.0, IVIM 1.3.0
