Server Installation fails

I've installed an SLES 11 SP 4 with Novell open Enterprise Server on an HP Proliant ML350 gen9.
All works fine.
Now I try to install Zenworks 11 SP4. After clicking on the next-Button of the install Anywhere-Screen, the installation screen freezes, nothing I can do.
What to do????:confused:

Which version of Open Enterprise Server? Please can you provide the
output from "cat /etc/*release".

Are you trying to install a ZENworks Primary or Satellite Server?
Starting with ZENworks 11 SP4 OES is not supported as a host for a
ZENworks Primary Server.

Re: Server Installation fails

Technically, ZCM 11.4 is not support on SLES 11 SP4.
Support for 11.4 is added in 11.4.1
Thus you would need to install on SLES 11 SP3 and once at 11.4.1 or later...upgraded to SLES 11 SP4.

Not sure if that is the root cause.....but that is the supported method.............

SLES 11 SP3 is not supported on HP Proliant ML350 gen 9. Installation fails. I can only install SLES 11 SP4.

Installed is: Novell Open Enterprise Server 2015 SP1.
I wanted to install Zenworks Primary server, but it isn't possible to install, because the installation screen freezes...

You cannot Install a primary server on OES at all, regardless which
version. It's not supported and also doesn't work. You need plain SLES
without OES (see the system requirements in the docs).

Then, your next problem would be SLES11SP4, as the installer of ZCM 11.4
actively checks the version and refuses to run on SLES11 SP4.

Personally, I suggest you use SLES12 and ZCM2017. SLes11 and ZCM 11 will
soon be unsupported, their successors have been out for quite a while now.

Re: Server Installation fails

Suggestion: Install Xen on your OES Server [it's a supported case], then install ZEN on a virtual machine [also a supported case].
