2.2 Migrating Patch Management

To migrate your Patch Management platform to ZENworks 2020 Update 3 or later version features:

  1. Log in to ZENworks Control Center and navigate to Configuration > Management Zone Settings > Security > Patch Subscription Service Settings.

  2. In the Patch Subscription Service Settings pane, click Migrate ZENworks Patch Management.

    NOTE:The Patch Subscription Service Settings page and, by extension, the Migrate ZENworks Patch Management option are only applicable to ZENworks environments that were upgraded to ZENworks 2020 Update 3 or later versions from a ZENworks 2020 Update 2 or earlier 2020 version. If you have a new installation of ZENworks 2020 Update 3 or a later version, the Patch Subscription Service Settings configuration page is deprecated. The same is true if the migration option has already been performed on an upgraded version.

  3. Respond to the prompts provided in the Patch Migration Wizard.

    You will have options to remove all data or remove all data except Patch policies and configuration settings.

    Once the migration is complete, changes will reflect in the Getting Started page for Mitigating Vulnerabilities, in the Patch configuration options under Security, and in the Patch Remediation Wizard. You will then need to select the links for the unconfigured options in the Enable Patch Management section of the Getting Started page to start the Patch Service and to select a Patch Server. Unconfigured settings are indicated by the red icon appendage .

NOTE:If you intend to configure Vertica in the zone, ensure that you restart the Patch Management Service after configuring Vertica.
