Tdebeer,

you have the 11.2.4 zdc, not the 11.2...

Re: Appliance 11.2 11.3 upgrade/migration

HI Shaun,

Thanx but i am stupid i get nowhere .... here is what the doc says to do .. if i do the "normal zdc check all is fine .. but this dbverify ..

Verify the ZENworks database schema by using the ZENworks Diagnostic Center:

Download the zdc_verifyDB_prerequisite.zip file from Novell Download Web site to a temporary location on your device.

Copy the downloaded file to ZENworks 11 Configuration Management SP2 Appliance.

Extract the ZIP file contents to a temporary location.

From the console, go to the directory that contains the extracted ZENworks Diagnostic Center files.

Run the following command:

/bin/sh zdc_verifyDB

Re: Appliance 11.2 11.3 upgrade/migration

Tdebeer,

OK - let's clarify: 1. what is the exact version of ZCM you have at the
moment? 2. What link did you follow to get the zdc? 🙂

Re: Appliance 11.2 11.3 upgrade/migration

I believe that I'm having the same issue. An early step of the ZCM SP2 to SP3 says to run the zdc_verifyDB_prerequisite download, which I downloaded the version under the ZCM 11 SP3 downloads and get the same error reported in the first post. The log file gives the following couple of lines...

[TRACE] [AbstractZENVerifier] Initializing 'zendatabase' verifier.
[DEBUG] [DiagnoseZen] Looking for baseline data [zcm/11.2.4/sybase/default/zendatabase.xml] in [/tmp/zdc_verifyDB_prerequisite/data/zcm_pre_11.2.0.zdc]
[ERROR] [DiagnoseZen]
[!] The baseline file does not contain data for verifier 'zendatabase'.
[INFO ] [DiagnoseZen]
+ Could not run any of the requested verifiers.

The way I'm reading the log is that the verifier is looking for zendatabase.xml which does not exist. So my question is, if this is true, how do I create the zendatabase.xml and where does it need to go?

Hi,

In my inifnite stupidness , the log file says to me it's looking for the embedded db , and not my external MSSQL db?.... looks like one should add a parameter tp point to the external DB?.??.

HI GYus,


When you ar ein the upgrade process the indicate that if the db has moved (external) you need to use "-d check" .. then it asks you for your db credetial etc..

no, link is in documentation: https://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks113/zen11_upgrade/data/bw42pk9.html
http://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=Ftzf11EG9Rc~ but only for 11.2.0!


Yep, looking at the dates they are from 2012... Novell probably forgot to update these or then the documentation points to the wrong download.
