Environment

Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1

Resolution

You must be running version 10.1.1 on all your ZCM servers before attempting to apply the 10.1.2a update: 10.1.1 should appear in your list of updates, and have the status "Baselined" - seeTID 7001539"Message indicating that you need to update to ZCM 10.1 before proceeding".
In order to upgrade the agent on your workstations, they must be running version 10.0.3 or later, it is not necessary to upgrade all agents to 10.1.1 before applying this update.


10.1.2a is a re-release of 10.1.2 - this is necessary because 10.1.2 did not correctly identify the necessary 10.1.1 pre-requisite for the server, and so it was possible to install it on a 10.1 server.

If you have previously applied the original 10.1.2 update (not the 10.1.2a version) to a server running 10.1 or earlier, without upgrading to 10.1.1, you should contact Novell Technical Support for assistance.

There are no code changes between 10.1.2 and 10.1.2a. If you have applied 10.1.2 to your 10.1.1 system, you do not need to apply this update. If you have downloaded 10.1.2 to your system, you will not see 10.1.2a, if you wish to obtain 10.1.2a, you must first delete 10.1.2.

10.1.2a correctly identifies 10.1.1 as the pre-requisite, and will not install on a server running 10.1.
  • The preferred method to obtain this update is to use System Updates: see section 12.0 in the online document "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management System Administration Reference", entitled "ZENworks System Updates".
  • If you cannot use online System Updates, and need to apply the update manually, you can download a zip file containing the update. See TID 7002064"ZCM 10.1.2a manual update zip file" at https://www.novell.com/support
