ZPM 11 upgrade for ZPM 6.4?

Just wanted to get some clarification.  With the eminent release of
ZENworks 11, is there still a ZENworks component or is this strictly an
upgrade for ZPM 6.4 which runs Patchlink?

HarryBoyee,

not sure what you're asking? ZCM 11 has an upgrade to the patch 
management that is in ZCM 10 now - the content is provided by 
Lumension, but the distribution mechanism is ZCM...

The "upgrade" documentation is missing completely. We are running a 6.4
server and no other zen products. The documentation does not clearly
state you can have a stand-alone ZPM11 server. The way I read the
documentation, am I wrong in assuming that I will now need two servers
(one for a Zen 11 DB server and one for ZPM)?

Crookjh,

the patch component in ZCM 11 completely replaces the ZPM 6.4 service. 
It uses the same content as ZPM 6.4, but uses ZCM to deliver it. There 
is no "upgrade" as such, it's a rip-and-replace, because it's so 
different

Do you know if ZPM-11 will still get new patches after July 8, 2011? 
Saw this info recently from Lumension about the end of life for version
6.4 sp2:
Lumension Patch and Remediation (formerly PatchLink) versions 6.4 SP2
and lower will move into Self-Support, and will no longer receive any
new Microsoft Windows patch content as of July 8, 2011.

In other words, is ZPM-11 considered to be equal to Lumension Endpoint
Management and Security Suite: Patch and Remediation v.7.0 and higher?
Thanks

Opus83,

ZCM 11 is already using the "new" mechanism for obtaining content, so 
it is not affected by the EOL notice (and just to offer hope for 
customers using ZPM 6.4SP2, Lumension are gong to provide us with an 
update that will allow our customers to download the "new" content with 
6.4SP2, during the rest of the General Support period, so we won't be 
"cut-off" :)

ZPM 6.4 to ZPM 11
We have a standalone ZPM Server (Version: 6.4.2.1592) and want to upgrade to 11 before January. I opened a support ticket asking support what are the best practices for the upgrade and got an answer that guided me to the Zenworks 11 documentation. The only information I got out of it was that 6.4 can't be upgraded to 11. The question is, what do I do, start over? Do I then have to get a new server activation code and re-apply all the licenses? Am I missing something? -- diggleburnz ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Digglebu...

Migrating from ZPM 6.4 SP2 Update 4 to ZPM 11
Greetings, Our enterprise is running a standalone installation of Zenworks Patch Management v6.4 SP2 Update 4 on a Windows 2003 R2 server with a mixture of v6.4.2.420 agents on XP machines and v6.4.2.504 agents on Win7 machines, all within an Active Directory domain. We do understand that Zenworks Patch Management v11 (we intend to migrate to the standalone product, not the Zenworks 11 suite) is a complete rip-and-replace for ZPM v6.4 SP2u4. As we have 1700+ machines, it goes without saying that we want to proceed carefully and properly during the migration. Our main focus is...

Patched 6.5.4 with 6.5.6 but agents are still running 6.5.4
I recently attempted to patch GroupWise 6.5.4 with the most recent patch 6.5.6. After the update finished, I restarted the server, checked all agents and noticed that they all were still running version 6.5.4. However, the first time that I attempted the patch, and I got to the end of the installation, I chose the option to automatically update the startup files, and to start the PO and the Domain (after clicking finish). When the domain and the PO started on the server (after I clicked on finish), they where running 6.5.6, but when I restarted the server and checked the ver...
