Reports are not getting generated while upgrading ZENworks

Source: ZENworks Reporting
Explanation: After upgrading ZENworks, migration processes will be running in the background and if you execute a report at that time, then the report related to those particular table (for example, status related reports) will utilize 100% CPU and report will not be generated.
Action: Generate reports after completing data migration.

To check the data migration status, use the following queries:

  1. select data from zopaquedata where name= 'com.microfocus.contentsync.pending.records.created'

    if DATA = "TRUE"

  2. select data from zopaquedata where name= 'migrate.old.status.data.execution.status'

    if DATA = "S" If the queries are DATA = "TRUE" and DATA = "S" then data migration is successful.
