Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.3a
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.4
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11 SP3 (11.3)
Microsoft Server 2012


The following scenario could be seen while preparing to upgrade to ZENworks 11 SP3:
  • There are 32-bit Windows servers that need to be replaced in the zone
  • It is desired to replace them with the Microsoft Server 2012 operating system
  • A new primary has been installed on Microsoft Server 2012
  • The new primary server is listed in ZENworks Control Center (ZCC), but none of the version information shows up on the server Summary page
  • The agent properties page on the new server shows Unavailable for the Management Zone, Server DNS, and Server Address


    While Microsoft Server 2012 is a supported platform for a managed device on ZENworks 11.2.3a and later, it is not a supported platform for a ZENworks 11.2 Primary server.

    Please see the ZENworks 11.2.x Primary Server Requirements for a list of supported platforms for Primary Servers.
