13.1 Preparing to Move the Data

Before configuring the server to point the new Oracle database, do the following:

  • Ensure that the ZENworks Server is configured to an Oracle database. The database can be installed on the ZENworks Server or on a different device. Assume that the device that currently host the Oracle database is called ORDB1.

  • Ensure that you have another Windows device with an Oracle database installed with the same database credentials as the ORDB1. Assume that this device is called ORDB2. For more information on how to install an Oracle database, for Windows, see Installing and Configuring an External ZENworks Database for Linux, see Installing and Configuring an External ZENworks Database in the ZENworks Server Installation.

  • Move the data from ORDB1 to ORDB2. For more information about moving the data, see the Oracle database documentation.

  • Stop the ZENworks services on the ZENworks Servers in the Management Zone.

    • On Windows:

      1. Execute the following command at the server prompt:

        novell-zenworks-configure -c Start

      2. Enter the number next to the Stop action.

    • On Linux:

      1. Execute the following command at the server prompt:

        /opt/novell/zenworks/bin/novell-zenworks-configure -c Start

      2. Enter the number next to the Stop action.
