About installing the Symantec Notification Server Migration Wizard

ITMS 6.x Migration

You use the Symantec Notification Server Migration Wizard to migrate data from Notification Server 6.x to Symantec Management Platform 7.5. To migrate data with the migration wizard, you must install the migration wizard on your 6.x server and on the 7.5 server.

See About the data that the migration wizard migrates from Notification Server 6.x

See About data migration

The migration wizard uses exporters to export data and a corresponding set of importers to import data. Each product that has data to migrate has its own set of exporters and importers. By default, the migration wizard exports and imports all of the data. Symantec recommends that you use the default setting to export and import all of the data.

The EXE for the migration wizard is NSUpgradeWizard.exe, and it is located in C:\Program Files\Altiris\Upgrade by default.

To install the migration wizard, .NET Framework 2.0 is required.

To run the migration wizard, you must be a member of the local administrators group.

How to install the migration wizard

Symantec Management Platform 7.5 server computer

Use Symantec Installation Manager on the computer to install the migration wizard components.

After you select the products to install, Symantec Installation Manager displays an Optional Installations page that includes the Install Migration Wizard Components option. If you check this option, the migration wizard components are installed with the selected products. You can also access the Optional Installations page at a later time to install the migration wizard components.

Notification Server 6.x computer

Copy the migration wizard installation package from the Symantec Management Platform 7.5 server. The migration wizard installation package has a 32-bit and a 64-bit version. Copy the 32-bit version. You then run the installation package to install the migration wizard.

The migration wizard installation package is only available on the 7.5 server if you have installed the optional migration wizard components on that computer. By default, the migration wizard installation package is installed at C:\Program Files\Altiris\Symantec Installation Manager\MigrationPackage.

The MigrationPackage folder contains four files. Two of the files include the word "silent" in their name. Use the migration package files that do not contain the word "silent" to install the migration wizard.

You can install 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 6.x Notification Server computer and migrate its data. You might install just the migration wizard if you need to install the Symantec Management Platform 7.5 products on your 6.x Notification Server computer. However, Symantec discourages the reuse of your current server. For more information about installing the Symantec Management Platform 7.5 products on your current server, see HOWTO32427.
