Upgrade ZCM11.4.3 -> ZCM17: When upgrade the DB?


there is a ZCM-Environment with 3 ZCM11.4.3-Appliances (All primary
servers) and one dedicated SLES11SP4 with the SybaseSQL Database.

What is the moment to upgrade the DB-Engine (as described in

Should I do this before start the migration of the first primary Server?
Or can ZCM17 use the old DB-Engine? (Until all ZCM-Servers are migrated)
Can I use ZCM11.4.3 (until I proceed with the ZCM-upgrade) with the new

Re: Upgrade ZCM11.4.3 -> ZCM17: When upgrade the DB?

Shut Down All ZCM Services on All Primaries. (Make sure to shut down monitor service as well, or that service restarts them....)
Backup Database (Snapshot if that is a VM as well...) and Take Snapshot of all Appliances.
Upgrade Database.
Then Upgrade 1st Primary and services left running.
Once that is done...Primaries 2 and 3 may be upgraded at same time. Do not start Services to upgrade...they will be started when process is done.
Please give a hearty thumbs up to any post you find helpful!
