ZENworks Configuration Management 2017 Installation - Server Appliance


  • Initial graphical configuration screen (enter root and zenadmin credentials) completes
  • Console switches to text screen, sticks at *** Starting YaST2 *** and nothing appears to happen
  • Unable to log in to https://servername:9443


Wait.  This part of the process can potentially take up to an hour.


The migration process is running a number of scripts in the background.

Additional Information

It is possible to ssh in to the Appliance at this point and use a command such as top to monitor what is happening and be reassured that the server has not, in fact, hung or crashed.
