  • Copy the opSLA tarball to the server (a tarball is a GZIP'd tar file, e.g. opsla-2012-05-09-1315.tar.gz)
    1. You may need to use SCP or FTP to get the file onto the server.
  • Change into the directory where the tarball was copied (the file will now likely be in the users home directory)
  • Untar the file and copy the contents to NMIS8
