Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 System Update
Novell ZENworks Endpoint Security Management 11.2 Locations


Upgrading a zone to ZCM 11.2.3a or to ZCM 11.2.4 - zone has several hundred locations configured. Upgrade of the first Primary server takes longer than previous upgrades (from just a few seconds, up to around 30 minutes longer for a zone with many hundreds of  servers with many hundreds of configured locations)


This is expected when there are many hundreds of locations, but will only happen for the first Primary server.


There are extra fields available in the database for Locations with 11.2.3a onwards, and the System Update Process must convert them: this can take considerable time when there are many hundreds.
