DB migration on appliance

Jump to solution

I have a ZCM 2017 Update 4 appliance.  I assume the DB migration steps apply to appliances also.  So I am planning the DB migration, but the docs are a little lacking in information.  The appliance migration docs here https://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks-2020/zen_upgrade/data/brivl5j.html point to these docs for the db migration: https://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks-2020/zen_sybase_postgre_migration/data/zen_sybase_postgre_migration.html

But the db migration docs don't provide any specific info regarding appliances.

1. Does the migration tool install the PostgreSQL db?  (I assume not)

2. If not, which version of PostgreSQL should be installed on a 2017 appliance?  (The docs offer three versions with no direction as to which one is applicable for the appliance.)

Just follow your link here for migrating to Embedded PostgreSQL (1.1)

https://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks-2020/zen_sybase_postgre_migration/data/zen_sybase_postgre_migration.html

Just assume you are using Linux for the path.

And yes.....The Migration Tool ZIP will install PostgreSQL for you.

Clearly make a Snapshot before starting......And there are scripts to roll back to Sybase if you have issues.

Thanks Craig!  Unless I am somehow missing it (and I read that page multiple times), I don't see anywhere on that page that it states that the migration tool will install the embedded PostgreSQL.  That is why I was confused about it.  Thanks for clarifying it!
