Installing language packs, documentation, or the migration wizard

ITMS Installation and Upgrade

After you have installed the IT Management Suite solutions, you can install optional components, such as documentation, language packs, or the migration wizard at a later time using the Symantec Installation Manager. You can also install the optional solutions during the first-time installation of IT Management Suite solutions.

The Optional Installations page in the Symantec Installation Manager lets you choose whether to install the optional components. These components are optional because you may not need them. If you do not need them, you can choose not to install them.

You can install any of the following optional components using the Symantec Installation Manager:

  • Install Documentation

    This option installs the documentation for the solutions that you selected, and for any installed solutions that do not have installed documentation. You can install this optional component only when you have any of the IT Management Suite solutions installed on the computer.

  • Install Language Support

    This option installs the language packs for any solutions that you selected, and for any installed solutions that do not have installed language packs. You can install this optional component only when you have any of the IT Management Suite solutions installed on the computer.

  • Install Migration Wizard Components for migrating Notification Server data

    This option installs the migration wizard components that you use to migrate Notification Server 6.x or 7.0 data to the latest version of the IT Management Suite using an off-box upgrade only. In case of on-box upgrade, the migration wizard is not required.

    See Types of installation of the IT Management Suite 7.5 SP1

    You can install the migration wizard components without installing any of the IT Management Suite solutions.

    If you install the latest version of the IT Management Suite solutions on your current Notification Server, you must migrate any Notification Server data before you upgrade the operating system during an off-box upgrade only. Migration wizard is not required if you perform an on-box upgrade. You can install the Symantec Installation Manager on another computer and install only the migration wizard components on that computer. You can then copy the migration wizard installation package to your current Notification Server and migrate Notification Server data.
