If you want to change the IP address of the Primary Server after installing ZENworks 11 SP3, and if the CN of the certificate does not have the IP address configured, use the following steps to change the IP address of the Primary Server:
Before changing the IP address of the Primary Server, take a reliable backup of the following on all Primary Servers in the Management Zone:
Content-Repo Directory: The content-repo directory is located by default in the ZENworks_installation_directory\work directory on Windows and in the /var/opt/novell/zenworks/ on Linux.
Ensure that the images directory located within the content-repo directory has been successfully backed up.
Certificate Authority: For detailed information on how to back up the certificate authority, see Section 1.3, Backing Up the Certificate Authority.
Embedded Database: For detailed information on how to back up the embedded database, see in ZENworks 11 SP3 Database Management Reference.
ZENworks Server Back up: For detailed information on how to back up the ZENworks Server, see Section 1.1, Backing Up a ZENworks Server.
Change the IP address of the Primary Server.
IMPORTANT:Do not change the DNS name of the server.
Ensure that the new IP address of the server is correctly mapped to its existing DNS name on the DNS server.
Restart all the ZENworks services by running the following command at the server’s command prompt:
novell-zenworks-configure -c Start
By default, all the services are selected. You must selectas the .
Re-create all the default and custom deployment packages:
Default Deployment Packages: At the server’s command prompt, enter the following command:
novell-zenworks-configure -c CreateExtractorPacks -Z
Custom Deployment Packages: At the server’s command prompt, enter the following command:
novell-zenworks- configure -c RebuildCustomPacks -Z
If the database is located on the Primary Server whose IP address you changed in Step 2.
Change the database server address on all the second Primary Servers. On all the second Primary Servers, change the value of database server address in the ZENworks_Installation_Directory\Novell\ZENworks\conf\datamodel\zdm.xml to point to the new IP address of the first Primary Server.
Change the audit database server address on all the second Primary Servers. On all the second Primary Servers, change the value of audit database server address in the ZENworks_Installation_Directory\Novell\ZENworks\conf\datamodel\zenaudit.xml to point to the new IP address of the first Primary Server.
Restart the ZENworks Adaptive Agent.
Restart the Proxy DHCP services on all the Satellites.
NOTE:When you change the IP address of a ZENworks Primary Server on which a ZENworks Reporting is installed, you must not perform any additional steps to ensure that the ZENworks Reporting functions properly. However, if the database is also residing on the ZENworks Primary Server, then you must run ZENworks Reporting Configuration Tool, to point to the new IP address of the Database.
(Conditional) If multizone is configured with this server (whose IP address is changed) as Publisher, then after replacing the First Primary Server with the Second Primary Server, update the new IP address of this server for all its Subscribers. Perform the following to update the new IP address:
Log in to ZENworks Control Center (ZCC) of subscribers.
Update the IP address with new IP address of the Primary Server (Publisher).
