Environment

ZENworks Appliance Migration

Situation

During the migration of the appliance from 2017 to 2020 a warning appears

"This appliance requires additional disks"

although the vastorage disk from the 2017 appliance is attached.
With the warning the only option is to power off.

Resolution

This is fixed in ZENworks 2020 Update 1 - see KB 7024523 "ZENworks 2020 Update 1 - information and list of fixes" which can be found at:

Workaround:

Press ctrl+alt+f10 then ctl+alt+F2  to get to a logon screen

user: root
password: linux

Open the file /etc/fstab to remove the line mounting /vatemp

Example :

The content of the file /etc/fstab looks like (2 lines)

UUID=f0bd3f31-92eb-460d-aa43-d97329b7f2a0 / ext3 acl 1 1
/dev/sdb1 /vatemp ext3 rw 0 0

Remove only the line "/dev/sdb1 /vatemp ext3 rw 0 0"

After the file /etc/fstab has been edited, run the command
# reboot
to reboot the machine. If the reboot takes longer, reset the machine in VM console.
Repeat the migration process.
