ZCM embedded database move - Unable to connect to the ZENwor

Getting ready to move ZENworks from my OES server to be able to upgrade to 11.3.
Installed new LINUX primary server got everyone patched to 11.2.4. Now I am moving the database to the new machine.
Followed the instructions from https://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks11/zen11_system_admin/data/by1ksnu.html.

Started up ZCC on the new server everything is great, but on the old server I get
[INDENT]Unable to connect to the ZENworks database. Please ensure that the ZENworks database is running. One of the possible causes could be the database server IP address changed. Please see the documentation for manual steps required to fix the login issue associated with it.[/INDENT]

I checked using /opt/novell/zenworks/share/sybase/bin32s/dblocate on both servers and they both say the database is running on the new server.

What have I missed?

Re: ZCM embedded database move - Unable to connect to the ZE

I missed being patient and giving the servers time to talk to each other and negotiate it out.
And I rebooted the original server.
Now everyone is happy.
