Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1


Unable to update ZENworks Configuration Management 10.0.3x agents to 10.1.1 using System Update


MPORTANT It is only necessary to use the steps below to manually upgrade to ZCM 10.1.1 if the on-line documentation System Update process fails

Determine the version of ZENworks Configuration Management:
  • Windows: %ZENWORKS_HOME%\Novell\Zenworks\version.txt
  • Linux: /etc/opt/novell/zenworks/version.txt
Ensure your servers are all running 10.1 before attempting to apply this update. This update will apply ZCM 10.1.1 to your servers and allow your ZCM 10.0.3x agents to be updated to ZCM 10.1.1. If you have already applied ZCM 10.1.1 to your servers and wish to apply the ZCM 10.1.1 cumulative update (to take advantage of bypassing the need to update ZCM 10.0.3x agents to ZCM 10.1), you must first DELETE the existing ZCM 10.1.1 System Update so that the ZCM 10.1.1 cumulative update appears in the System Updates tab of ZCC.

1. Download the zip file "ZCM_10_1_1_c.zip" from Novell Downloads search for keyword "ZCM 10.1.1 cumulative manual update files" or "ZCM_10_1_1_c.zip"

2. Copy the zip file to one of the ZENworks servers in the zone (a location on the server where the ZENworks user has rights). Do not unzip the file.
a. For example, on Linux, copy the zip file to /opt/novell/zenworks/
b. For example on Windows, copy the zip file to %ZENWORKS_HOME%

3. From a command prompt on the Windows or Linux ZENworks server where you copied the zip file in step 2, run the command:
zman sui
[path to zip file] (for details, run zman sui --help):
a. Example on Windows:
zman sui "C:\Program Files\Novell\ZENworks\ZCM_10_1_1_c.zip"
b. Example on Linux:
zman sui /opt/novell/zenworks/ZCM_10_1_1_c.zip

4. The zman sui command should successfully report: "The update(s) contained in"[path to file]"ZCM_10_1_1_c.zip will begin importing shortly. You may use ZCC to track the status of your import"

5. Follow the System Update steps in the on-line documentation to complete the deployment of the update to ZCM 10.1.1.

The update can be canceled and re-deployed. See the on-line documentation for details.
