Upgrading SLES before upgrading ZCM

Hi,

We are currently at ZCM 11.1 on SLES 11.0 on one of our zones and will be moving to 11.2.2 next month.

11.2.2 requires SLES 11.1 in order to continue; does anyone have any comments about upgrading the underlying OS to SP1 before upgrading Zenworks? I can't see why it would do any damage..

Thanks in advance,

Neil.

ZCM 11.2.2 does not require SLES 11.1 (11 SP1).

Perhaps what you're thinking of is the other way round, that SLES 11.2
(11 SP2) requires ZCM 11.2.1?

Since you have ZCM 11.1 on SLES 11.0 (11 SP0) you have two products to
upgrade, ZCM and SLES, to get to latest releases:

ZCM: upgrade ZCM 11.1 to 11.2 then to 11.2.1
SLES: upgrade SLES 11.0 to 11.1 then to 11.2

The order you do them in is not important other than to note that you
should make sure that ZCM is at 11.2.2 before doing the SLES upgrade
from 11.1 to 11.2.

Personally I'd upgrade SLES from 11.0 to 11.1 first, then ZCM from 11.1
to 11.2 and on to 11.2.1 second, and finally SLES from 11.1 to 11.2.

HTH.

Re: Upgrading SLES before upgrading ZCM

Ok,

I'm possibly mistaken in what I remembered when we took another zone from 11.0 to 11.2.1 as that had a SLES 10 server (historic - ZCM 10, reporting server etc) which we applied the service pack to, which is probably what stuck in my mind.

The sequence makes sense that you suggested, though this zone is going to 11.2.2 (as if supposedly fixes COLW32.exe finally!).

Thanks for the info.

Neil.
