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,

there's little crossover at all; the content is the same, and the 
license code can be reused. The agent is different, and the process is 
different (similar, but different).

So, I'd recommend a new server, you can set one up right now, using the 
same serial number (but see TID 7009469), and experiment. The old and 
new agents can co-exist on the same machine, but of course there's 
higher RAM requirement if you do that. If you have specific ZPM 11 
questions, there's a forum for that...

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...

ZPM 11 upgrade for ZPM 6.4?

ZPM 6.4 patching SLES
Someone has bought ZPM 6.4, to patch SLES servers. How is the patch stream for SLES? Beyond what you would have gotten out of Yast's Online Update from a repository, how much else does it offer?

Recently rebuilt our ZPM server from scratch (it's at version 6.4.2.1549 currenlty) and came across something a bit strange. The following vuln. is listed for the ZPM server: B - Novell ZENworks Patch Management Agent 6.4 SP2 Server Side Update (QFE) (See Notes) (Rev 2) Yet when you walk through the deployment wizard it shows the following name for this patch: B - Novell ZENworks Patch Management Agent 6.4 SP1b Server Side Update Is this a typo in the packaging of the patch or is the patch not what it appears to be? I'm a little hesitant to apply it to the server ...

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...

ZPM 6.2.2.190 on Win2k to 6.4 on Win2k3
I have a really old version of ZPM on a WIN2k machine. My goal is to format the server to Win2k3, restore the data to version 6.2 then upgrade to 6.3/.4 I don't want to do an OS upgrade to WIN2k on this machine because the OS is already flakey, I want to start fresh, and eventually get to ZPM ver 6.4. What are some guidelines in doing this? Can I just backup every thing, reinstall the OS / ZPM then restore, then upgrade? Any help is appreciated... -- ryandkelly ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Ryandkelly, how much do...

ZPM 6.4 SP2
I see that Patchlink shows PLUS 6.4 SP2 as being available in the Latest News section of the Home page. Any estimates when this will be available for ZPM customers?

Thx, Anthony Anthony, pretty soon (I'm testing it now) and both :) -- Shaun Pond I saw Novell TID 7002957. Is this available for download yet? If so, can someone provide the link?

ZPM 6.4 Installation error
Hi guys. Really need some help. We need to get out ZPM 6.4 SP1 Update 2 server upgraded to SP2 update 4 ASAP. I've tried to upgrade or existing server but get errors running SQL scripts.

This obviously looks like the server has upgraded some components of the website but not something in the database. I've also tried instaling the SP2 installation end...
