ZENworks 11
Do I Install, Migrate, Upgrade, or Update?
Novell
Please refer to the following sections to understand which installation process is appropriate for your current ZENworks
environment:
 New Installation: If you have no ZENworks versions installed, you need to perform a new installation. With the new
installation process, you install one or more ZENworks Servers and deploy the ZENworks Adaptive Agent to any devices
you want to manage.
Server installation and agent deployment instructions are provided in the ZENworks System - New Installation section of
the documentation site (http://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks11).
 Migration: The ZENworks system architecture changed dramatically with the release of ZENworks 10. If you have one
of the pre-ZENworks 10 products listed below, you can perform a new installation to create a ZENworks 11 system and
then migrate data from that product into the new system:
 ZENworks for Desktops 4.0.1
 ZENworks Desktop Management 6.5
 ZENworks 7.x Desktop Management
 ZENworks Asset Management 7.5
 ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management with IR2 or later
Migration instructions are provided in the ZENworks System - Migration section of the documentation site (http://
www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks11)
 Upgrade: Upgrades apply to ZENworks 10 and ZENworks 11 versions. You upgrade to move from one major.minor
version to another. For example, to move from ZENworks 10 SP1 (also referred to as ZENworks 10.1) to ZENworks 11
SP2 (also referred to as ZENworks 11.2), you upgrade. Or to move from ZENworks 11 to ZENworks 11 SP2, you
upgrade.
Upgrade instructions are provided in the ZENworks System - Upgrade section of the documentation site (http://
www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks11).
 System Updates: System updates apply to ZENworks 10 and ZENworks 11 versions. You update to move from one
major.minor.revision version to another. For example, to move from ZENworks 11 SP2 (11.2) to ZENworks 11.2.1, you
apply the 11.2.1 system update.
System updates do not work across major.minor versions. For example, you can not apply the ZENworks 11.2.1 system
update to a ZENworks 11 SP1 (11.1) system. In this case, to update to ZENworks 11.2.1, you would first upgrade from
ZENworks 11 SP1 to ZENworks 11 SP2 and then apply the ZENworks 11.2.1 update.
System update instructions are provided in the ZENworks System - System Update section of the documentation site
(http://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks11).
