Stop the OEM Sybase database service on the source machine (32-bit).
Use the ZENworks 11 SP3 media on the 64-bit machine and start the OEM Sybase database installation by using the following command:
Windows: setup.exe -c
Linux: setup.sh -c
Select OEM Sybase as the.
Select the default path for a 64-bit machine as the database path for the. If you select any other path, the OEM database installation fails.
The default paths are as follows:
32-bit machine: Program Files/Novell/ZENworks
64-bit machine: Program Files (x86)/Novell/ZENworks
If a non-default port and path are used for the OEM database installation on the source machine (32-bit), it is recommended to select the same path structure on the 64-bit machine as well.
If a default port and path are used for the OEM database installation on the source machine (32-bit), it is recommended to select the same path structure on the 64-bit machine as well.
Enter the OEM database details (, , , and ). This information should be the same as that of the 32-bit OEM Sybase database, except for the IP address of the 32-bit machine, which will be changed after the OEM database installation on the 64-bit machine.
Stop the Sybase service on the 64-bit machine
Take a backup of the database folder from the 32-bit machine (includes the OEM Sybase database file) and replace the database file on the 64-bit machine with the backed-up (32-bit) database file.
Verify whether the CONF file on the 64-bit machine is updated with the proper OEM database path and port number respectively.
NOTE:There is no need to replace the CONF file, as a fresh install of the OEM database is done on the 64-bit machine using the same database credentials as that of the 32-bit machine.
Disable the network card on the 32-bit machine.
Configure the 32-bit machine's IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, preferred DNS, host name and DNS suffix on the 64-bit machine.
Reboot the 64-bit machine.
