Jump to solution

If you are referencing taking your 5.1 NSM and upgrading it to 6.x, here is the order:

1.) FIRST backup your DB in 5.1

2.) Install 6.x version on top of 5.1

3.) NSM will roll to 6.x... Log in to NSM

4.) You will now see your 5.x sensor in 6.x. manager

5.) Download or impoart 6.x sensor software to NSM for your sensor models

6.) Push sensor software to sensors... reboot sensors

7.) Lastly, download or import 6.x sigset to NSM... push to sensors

You're done...

Cheers
