i got permission to deploy the new NTA release V 4.0.1
i HIGHLY RECOMMENDS that the new non-sql DB not be on the same VM.
so i plan to use my NCM VM which is lightly loaded . i boosted the wind 2k8R2 VM to 4 VCPU and 16 GB of ram and started to install the NTA non-sql DB just of this VM
it goes through the whole installation, but at the end i get this in the NTA FLOW Storage configuration step
"starting of solarwinds NTA flow storage failed
reboot and re install, uninstall and re-install all give the same result
i then tried to see if i could install the actual NTA sw on the npm server
similar issue, it goes fairly far and then stops at the same stage with
cannot connect to NTA flow storage
i will use this post to create a ticket with SW
anyone else see this or know a solution
Just a note from support case - issue was not related to NCM DB, but to wrongly configured environment.
Generally NTA FSDB can run on same server as NCM DB does, just please consider performance implications.
