  1. Perform a global upload and an NC upload for all NCMs in the network.
  2. Perform an UNDDL/Net and check and fix any errors.
  3. Add the NIE as an OWS (PC device) to the N1 Network.
  4. Configure the NIE at a fixed IP address. N1 Networks do not support DHCP.
  5. Add the NIE to all the N1 Network access report groups as a file destination for critical reports and as a file destination for status reports. Be sure to verify that reporting is configured for each object. Enable status reporting for BI, BD, MCO, and MSI objects by setting the report type for each NCM object since normal status changes do not usually report to the PMI. Adding the NIE to all the N1 Network access report groups makes updating values on mapped objects faster when the NIE receives a report. In all other cases, the values are updated as the NIE periodically polls the present value for all mapped objects or polls CSG attributes on a request basis. If reports are not sent to the migration device, values for point objects are updated more slowly.

Note: The only report that the NCM issues for a BO or MSO object triggered by a command is the report for overrides.
