Additional Information

See the update readme  https://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=msTorBwk3EA~ for compatibility, new features, reboot behavior and known limitations.

System Requirements:
ZENworks Configuration Management 11 SP3 or higher. After downloading the zip file, it is strongly recommended that you compare the MD5 checksum for the file with the one shown on the Novell Downloads page, before attempting to deploy.

Do not deploy this update until all Primary Servers and Satellites in the zone have been upgraded to ZENworks 11 SP3. 

This update requires schema changes to be made to the database. As such, only one primary server should have its services running during the initial patch installation so that other primaries are not trying to access the tables being changed in the database. 

After the first Master Primary or dedicated server has been updated, the remaining servers can restart their services and apply the update simultaneously.

For agents that are ZENworks 10.3.4 or later, this update is cumulative and when deployed will update the agents directly to the Update for ZENworks 11 SP3 (11.3.1).

Importing the Update
Download ZENworks_11.3.1_Update.zip from this update.
  1. Copy the zip file to one of the ZENworks servers in the Zone. (if System Update is configured to use a “Dedicated System Update Server”, use this server for the import). Do not unzip the file.

    For example:
    On Linux, copy the zip file t
    o /tmp
    On Windows, copy the zip file to %ZENWORKS_HOME%

  2. Using a command prompt on the ZENworks server where you copied the zip file in step 1, run the command
    zman sui
    [path to zip file]
    For details, run the command
    zman sui --help

    For example on Windows:
    zman sui "C:\Program Files\Novell\ZENworks\ZENworks_11.3.1_Update.zip"
    For example on Linux:
    zman sui /tmp/ZENworks_11.3.1_Update.zip

  3. The zman sui command should report: "The update(s) contained in "[path to file]" ZENworks_11.3.1_Update.zip will begin importing shortly. You may use ZCC to track the status of your import".
  4. In ZENworks Control Center, navigate to Configuration > System Updates and monitor the status of "Update for ZENworks 11 SP3 (11.3.1)", until it shows "Downloaded"
  5. After the Update is imported, it needs to replicate to all content servers.  This replication can be tracked by navigating to Update for ZENworks 11 SP3 (11.3.1)> Replication Status.
  6. Continue Deployment AFTER replication is 100% on all content servers.
