As the support automation tool for NMIS has proven very useful, we've now extended that capability to our commercial products. There is now a support tool available that covers the commercial Opmantek products.

The OMK support tool will ship with all future releases and it will incrementally grow in functionality. Its first version provides a convenient way to collect all relevant info regarding a server's system and product installation status and configuration for troubleshooting purposes. In addition to this, the support tool will also check if there is an NMIS installation with the NMIS support tool present, and if so it'll run that as well.

The newest version of this tool can be downloaded here: OMK Support Tool Version 1.6.3. It needs to be saved in the bin/ directory of your Opmantek installation; most commonly that would be /usr/local/omk/bin/.

Running the support tool without arguments shows a help screen.

If the  NMIS support tool is detected, then that will be run as well and you will see two separate ZIP files:
