ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management provides upgrade paths from the following previous versions:
ZENworks 7 Linux Management with IR1: Your current ZENworks 7 Linux Management system must have IR1 installed.
ZENworks 7 Linux Management - Dell Edition: Your current ZENworks 7 Linux Management - Dell Edition system must have the latest patches installed. This release was available as an OEM release to Dell PowerEdge customers only.
You cannot upgrade from ZENworks 6.6.x Linux Management directly to ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management.
If you have ZENworks 6.6.x Linux Management systems that you want to migrate to ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management, you must first migrate to ZENworks 7 Linux Management with IR1 and then upgrade to ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management. Be aware that because of the expanded architecture between ZENworks 6.6.x Linux Management and ZENworks 7 Linux Management, there is limited upgrade support between the two versions.
