Add Appliance to ZCM2017 Update 2 Zone

Hi,

we would like to add a third primary Server to our Zenworks Zone.
The Zone consists of two non-Appliance Servers with Zenworks 2017 Update 2.
The downloadable Appliance is ZENworks2017a_Appliance-x86_64.ova so there is no Update 2 included.
Is it necessary to Update the Appliance to Update 2 before adding it to the Zone?
Or can we just add it without any updates installed and install them after that?

Best Regards
Marco Hald

Re: Add Appliance to ZCM2017 Update 2 Zone

Add it to the zone w/o any updates and then apply Update 2.
FYI....Update 3 is expected to ship in Mid August.

"Update 4" will actually be a MEDIA release and will have new appliances and install ISOs to allow introduction of new servers directly at the Update 4 level.
This release will also be tentatively be called ZENworks 2019.

A Better estimate for that will be available after Update 3 ships....

I think this is the same what I am currently doing:

I have upgraded my existing SLES 11 SP4 servers to ZCM 2017 Update 3. The next steps will be adding appliances, updating these to Update 3 and then this: https://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks-2017-update-3/zen_sys_disaster_recovery/data/bj1yh9t.html

Correct....
You will Add the Appliance to your Zone and then follow the Docs to Remove the Prior Primary.
Reminder: Always Give devices time to see the new server before removing the old.....Especially in a single primary zone.
