Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 3 - 10.3


If you update to 10.3.2 you will not be able to update directly to ZENworks 11.0. You are able to update to ZENworks 11.1.
Because of the limitation shown above, it is important to consider which is the correct upgrade path. Consider the list of fixes in this document, and compare with the list in TID 7006995 - ZENworks 11 - information and updates to decide if a required fix is in ZCM 10.3.2, ZCM 11, or both.
Information regarding the prerequisites for upgrading to this version, and details regarding new platform support is contained in the readme for ZCM 10.3.2 at https://www.novell.com/documentation/zcm10/readme/readme_zcm1032.html
  • The preferred method to obtain this update is to use online System Updates: see section III in the online document "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management System Administration Reference", entitled "ZENworks System Updates".
  • If online System Updates cannot be used, and there is a need to import the update manually, a zip file containing the update can be downloaded. See "ZCM 10.3.2 upgrade manual import file" athttps://download.novell.com/patch/finder
  • Note that once the import of ZCM 10.3.2 has begun, the update for 10.3.1 will no longer be visible in the list of System Updates, since it is superseded by 10.3.2
