The NBAR2 application mapping rules that you import represent the current set of NBAR2 application definitions as of the product release time frame.


Follow these steps:


1. Log in to the NFA console server or stand-alone server as a user who is a member of the Administrators group.


2. Open a command prompt.


3. Navigate to the directory that contains the nbar2.csv file: Enter the following command:


cd <install_path>\reporter\racmd




<install_path> is the product installation path. The default path is C:\CA\NFA.


racmd is the directory that contains the nbar2.csv file. The file is written to this directory when you install the product.



4. Enter the following command:


racmd -import nbar2.csv


5)You can verify the NBAR2 Application Definitions were imported by looking at the 'Administration->Application Definitions'  page in RA.


**You can also use this procedure to create your own csv file to import newer NBAR2 definitions.
