Easiest way to get from ZCM 10.3.3 to ZCM 11 SP1?

We've been testing ZCM 10 in a SLES 10 environment for about a year and have about 150 PCs and Macs in the ZCM 10 database now. We have been a Zfd7 environment for many years, and I decided not to try to migrate the existing database, but to convert "by attrition". That is we've been using the ZCM 10 server for imaging new machines which have then become the new ZCM 10 inventory, and have created a few application bundles, just to get a feel for it.

We have decided not to pursue the Linux environment, though, and want to switch to a Windows-based ZENworks server. I'd like to just install the ZCM 11 SP1 on a new Windows 2008R2 VM and start from there.

What's the easiest way to get my existing ZCM inventory into the ZCM 11SP1 environment? All the "Migration" documentation seems to be focused on ZfD7, not ZCM 10. Should I just uninstall the ZCM 10.3.3 clients from my existing inventory and then install the ZCM 11 SP1 client, from the new server? Could I actually push the new client out in a ZCM 10 bundle? Or is there a better way to go about this?

Thanks in advance for advice.

Rbaker,

you can unreg from the old zone and re-reg to the new zone, but there's
a manual acceptance of the certificate, unless you use certmgr to push
out the cert from the new zone...

Will the New Zone Include the Required System Update to Update the
Existing 10.x Devices? By Default not likely, but perhaps there are
steps to import it to be used? I could look it up, but you may know.

Hey thanks, I appreciate your thoughts. Obviously a noob question, and I've lots of reading to do, but this helps me get started. Any other ideas, please toss them my way. Thanks again.

Craig,

I need to update TID 7007958 - "Cannot automatically upgrade ZCM 10
agents registered into fresh ZCM 11 zone" I think

Just thinking out loud... Would it be a doable option to install a Windows ZCM primary server into the existing Zone, move the database and roles over and remove the SLES primary.
Then as last step upgrade to ZCM 11 SP1?
