Netview Parameter Migration FastPath

      A parameter migration aid facility that allows users migrating
from an earlier release of a product to view a summary of the new and
changed configuration parameters for a new product release is
disclosed.

      The NetView Installation and Administration Facility/2 (NIAF/2)
includes a migration aid facility that summarizes the additions and
changes that have been made to the product's parameter set since the
previously installed release and displays this summary to the user.

      The migration aid facility generates a list of new and changed
parameters based on the release from which the user is migrating.
The
list will therefore vary depending on the previously installed
release.

      To determine which configuration parameters have changed or
have been added, the user would select the migrate pulldown from the
menu bar in the installation and configuration program window (Fig.
1).

      A window containing a list of all product components and
parameters containing new or changed values is then displayed (Fig.
2).
When the user double clicks on any of the listed parameters, a help
panel describing the selected parameter is displayed.
