Environment

Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1.3 Migration

Situation

Migration of Sybase to Oracle database fails if the ZAM Migration utility was used to migrate from ZAM 7.5 to ZCM 10.1.x.  The same failure will also happen if the ZAM Migration from ZAM 7.5 to ZCM 10.1.x was done, then 10.1.x was upgraded to 10.2. 
 
It gives the following error:
 
[2009.04.20-18:53:20] FINER: Number of rows in target DB:NC_CPUis:0
[2009.04.20-18:53:20] FINER: ORA-01438: value larger than specified precision allowed for this column
