Netcool Service Extension (IT NCM 6.3) to Network Service Manager (ITNCM6.4 ) Migration Process.
This Guide is intended for users of the Tivoli Netcool Service
Extension (NSE) that are intending to move their existing NSE Services
from Tivoli Netcool Configuration Manager (NCM) 6.3 to NCM 6.4.
Specifically for those NSE users that are now planning to use the Tivoli
Network Service Manager (NSM ) REST API.
Before attempting the migration process users should first become familiar with Tivoli Netcool Service Extension and Tivoli Network Service Manager documentation.
The procedure to migrate from NSE includes a tool to automatically
convert NSE Service XML into it's equivalent NSM Service Template format. The NSM API
offers additional features that may be considered for inclusion when
migrating your NSE Services. Consult the NSM documentation for details on the new features available.
The Guide takes the bottom up approach for the migration, starting with
the ITNCM Command Sets and finishing with the changes to the Client
Requests to instantiate a Service. The Network Service Designer may decide on
their own migration process, this document acts only as a Guide.
Follow the procedure as detailed here on the Tivoli Netcool Configuration Manager Wiki
