This document (7010347) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.1 Database


Attempting to migrate from an Internal Sybase Database to an External Oracle Database, following instructions in the online documentation

 message:Failed to execute the SQL command: --BREAK,
 message:Invalid SQL type: sqlKind = 0

Migration fails


This is fixed in version 11.2.2 - see TID 7010757 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.2 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Workaround: if it is not possible to upgrade to ZCM 11.2.2 at this time, in the interim, Novell has made a Patch available for testing, in the form of a Field Test File (FTF): it can be obtained at as "ZCM 11.2.1 - fix to allow migration from embedded Sybase to Oracle - see TID 7010347". This Patch should only be applied if the symptoms above are being experienced, and are causing problems.

This Patch has had limited testing, and should not be used in a production system without first being checked in a test environment. Some Patches have specific requirements for deployment, it is very important to follow any instructions in the readme at the download site. Please report any problems encountered when using this Patch, by using the feedback link on this TID.


Incorrect SQL syntax in /opt/novell/zenworks/share/datamodel/oracle/nc_component_indexes.sql file, found too late in the test cycle to be incorporated into ZCM 11.2.1
