ZENworks Linux Management requires either a PostgreSQL or Oracle database for the ZENworks Data Store. During installation of the ZENworks Primary Server, you are asked whether you want the installation program to create a new PostgreSQL database on the Primary Server or use an existing PostgreSQL or Oracle database located on either the Primary Server or another network server.
If you want to create a new PostgreSQL database on the Primary Server, you can skip the remainder of this section and continue with Installing the ZENworks Primary Server.
If you plan to use an existing PostgreSQL or Oracle database, you need to complete the tasks in the following sections before you install your Primary Server.
NOTE:For detailed information on backing up and restoring the ZENworks Data Store using PostgreSQL, and optimizing the server database performance, see Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management Administration Guide.
