Novell ZENworks Configuration Management provides the ZENworks Migration Utility that allows you to migrate your traditional ZENworks Novell eDirectory objects and attributes into the ZENworks Configuration Management database. Because Configuration Management uses a different architecture than previous versions of ZENworks, migrating your traditional ZENworks data is the only method for upgrading to Configuration Management.
