How to install OMS over NIMS
OMS can be installed directly on top of NIMS. This is the recommended method of migrating because most NIMS settings will migrate to OMS during installation.
Prerequisite(s):  
See Supported Operating Systems for a list of supported operating systems.
 
1. Download the latest installation file from our update site. If you copied the installation files from our website, start the installation program.
2. When the setup program runs, follow the onscreen instructions.
 
The installation of OMS is finished. Most of your previous settings have been migrated from NIMS. If you use a secondary NIMS system, the secondary NIMS system should also now be providing all NIMS duties.
 
 
You are ready to launch OMS for the first time and license the product. If you use a secondary NIMS system, allow it to remain operational while you license the OMS system that was your primary NIMS server.
