NetBackup Self Service CSV Machine / Computer Import Example

Hi

This script package has been created as an example of how to consume the NetBackup Self Service (NSS) REST API to register a list of computers in the NSS computer inventory. While we use a CSV file as the computer list import source in this example, other alternative sources could use the same approach, a CSV file here being one of the simplest possible examples.
