Any tips prior Optivity NMS 9.2 installation??

Any tips prior Optivity NMS 9.2 installation??

In the next few weeks I'm installing Optivity NMS 9.2 on my Nortel-based network.  It consists of a couple of Passport 8600, and 50+ 450 switches on multiple domains and subnets.  This on a multi-plattform environment.  I plan to install it on a Win 2k Server.  Wha't should be the optimum hardware reccomendations for the NMS??  Just to ask any helpful hints or tips on the initial installation and configuration of NMS.  I've heard of getting the latest OIT's and stuff like that.  Any details you can give me on those little things that can prevent that the process turns into a living nightmare??.  Also, the Switch Manager is included in the Optivity NMS 9.2?  Well any suggestions on the pre and post installation process will be appreciated.  Thanks!!

RE: Any tips prior Optivity NMS 9.2 installation??

You will need to download any patches and fixes and apply these prior to the install, also the OIT files will need to match the s/w versions of your switches. Installing the OIT's takes ages so be patient.

Hi there

I have installed  Optivity 9.2 but unable to discover the network, I have heard we need to make the seed router entry into one file before running auto topology discovery, without that the discovery will not be successful. please suggest
