The manager appliance should come with a recovery DVD which should be bootable.
Is there anything printed on the disk you have?
Do you have an issue with the appliance that requires it to be re-installed?
The appliance is not working properly. I have some errors on the event viewer asociated with a intermitent faillure with remote desktop.
The DVD I have received has a .TIB file on it (Acronis?).
Q1: Is this bootable without acronis installed? I did not tested it yet because I'm some miles away from the appliance.
Also, I have received the DVD with NSM 7.1,
Q2: is it possible to download the DVD ISO for NSM 8.x somewhere?
Thanks in advance.
If you put the DVD in the appliance it should boot without having to install anything else.
I don't know if you can download a new ISO with later versions of software, you can download newer version of the NSM manager software and upgrade the appliance.
Probably best to contact support and ask them.
