After installing ZfD 6.5 SP1a, I'm now unable to configure ConsoleOne to
connect to the inventory database.

After browsing to my Inventory Database_{server} object, I get an error:

"Unable to connect to database.
Ensure that the database object properties are set properly and
Database is up and running."

How can you determine the database is running? The Zenwork Inventory
Service is running on the server. I can manually scan a workstation and see
the results on the Inventory Service console screen on the server. Also,
the minimal inventory data is showing in the workstation object.

I was able to configure the database before apply ZfD6.5 SP1a. My
ConsoleOne snapins are:
Zenworks Desktop Management snapins for configuring policy settings
Zenworks Desktop Management snapins for administering and managing
software distribution (20041122)

How do I resolve the configure database problem?

One other question: What's the Desktop Management Database object used for?
