Migrating a Traditional ZENworks Environment to Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management [Course 8515]

Course Overview

Because the ZENworks Configuration Management architecture is radically different from the traditional ZENworks Desktop Management architecture, you cannot perform an in-place upgrade of ZENworks Desktop Management to ZENworks 11 Configuration Management. However, ZENworks 11 Configuration Management provides a set of tools, called the ZENworks Migration Utility, to help you migrate data from previous ZENworks products. This course examines the key processes for migration.

Training Level: 3 - Advanced

Duration: 4 Hours

Key Objectives

By the time you complete this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the ZENworks Migration Utility
