For the composites, you just need to do the ROUTE REL.  You can
release individual products by specifying the respective codes
(e.g. ROUTE REL N1 N2 ....).  You should only release those products
you want to create and use.

For the NIDS data, you just need to set the decoder active.  If you


you will see it is inactive now:

Processing Data Monitor: DMNIDS       is inactive
Decoder       Status      Configuration File
NIDS          Active      NIDSDEC.CFG


To activate the decoder, run:


see the "Running XCDSETUP and additional configuration steps":


for more details on this.  

Also, it appears that you have not set up scouring on osric yet.
Follow the instructions under "Add a scheduler entry to scour old data."
in the document listed above to set up data scouring.  Otherwise, you
risk the chance of filling up your disk soon.

Looks like you are almost there!
