ZENworks updates are live @ NCC Channel

0 Likes

The mechanism by which ZENworks updates are available @ Novell Customer Central (NCC) portal, makes it easy for Administrator(s) to consume ZENworks updates in a automated fashion.

There were issues posting these updates on NCC & that has been addressed in ZENworks 11SP4. I am happy to say that NCC is now operational & the first ZENworks update that is posted is “Update for ZENworks 11 SP4 (11.4.1)”. The "Update for ZENworks 11 SP4 (11.4.1)" release is an update over "Update for ZENworks (11 SP4)". It includes many defect fixes and new features in addition to the features available in "Update for ZENworks (11 SP4)". To know the details of this update, refer TID 7016895

In additional to the NCC fixes addressed in 11 SP4, there has been improvements done for a better usage of NCC. These improvements has been published as an update “Post 11SP4 Update Prereq” that is applicable for ZENworks Primary Servers. The action here is to apply “Post 11SP4 Update Prereq” update to all primary servers in the zone post upgrading to 11SP4. To know the details of this update, refer TID 7016896

The update “Post 11SP4 Update Prereq” by itself is available in NCC. Applying this update will make all upcoming updates seamless. Henceforth all future ZENworks updates are posted through NCC.

Happy Updating through NCC

  • A question on logistics. I have one primary server but am about to add a second. Server #1 is on 11.4. Should I add the second primary at 11.4 and then upgrade both with the Prereq and then the 11.4.1 upgrade, or can I take the existing server all the way to 11.4.1 and then add the second server and bring it through the steps to 11.4.1 without problems?

  • In the second method with zone @ 11.4.1, there are chances of DB data reverting back to 11.4 while adding a primary server @ 11.4. This data will eventually updated to 11.4.1 when 11.4.1 update is applied to the newly added primary server.

    Due to this data changes, there are chances (not necessary) of functionality loss till the newly added primary is updated to 11.4.1.

    With the zone @ 11.4, My recommendation would be to add a server @ 11.4 & then apply Post 11 SP4 Prereq & 11.4.1 updates.
