1.0 Upgrading the Primary Servers to ZENworks 2017

Using the ZENworks 2017 installation media, you can directly upgrade a Primary Server to ZENworks 2017 if it is using ZENworks 11 SP4 (11.4.0) or later.

If the upgrade installer reports any of the following issues during the upgrade, follow the recommended procedures to resolve the problem:

  • Unsupported ZENworks version: Upgrade all Primary Servers to ZENworks 11 SP4. Ensure that all Primary Servers in the zone have the same version of ZENworks 11.4.x.

  • Unsupported operating systems: Upgrade the operating systems to a supported version.

    For more information about the discontinued operating systems, see the ZENworks 2017 Update1 System Requirements.

IMPORTANT:Do not extract the ISO image and use it to install. The installation must be run from an installation DVD.
