Note - this patch is included in 10.1.1

This is a required patch to the 10.0.3+ to 10.1 schema upgrade. This patch will clean up orphaned data as well as create the constraints to prevent orphaned data upon deletion of various objects throughout the 10.1.0 zone.

If you have upgraded to 10.1 (note this is only necessary if you have upgraded, it is not necessary for new installs), you should apply this on your first primary server, to correct issues with the database schema upgrade.

This patch is available at https://download.novell.com/patch/finder/#familyId=18962&priority=&productId=25066&distribution=&architecture=&keywords=zcm10.1-post-upgrade.zip&xp=25066&xy=25066_2008 by searching for keyword zcm10.1-post-upgrade.zip
