Because our Primary ZCM 11.2.1 on SLES11 still had problems like
"Failed to process action: Object reference not set to an instance of
an object" even after upgrading to 11.2.1, we decided to
start a new installation from scratch.

The history of the "old" Server:

Starting with SLES11SP1 + ZCM 11
- Upgrading to ZCM 11.1
- Upgrading to ZCM 11.2
- Upgrading to ZCM 11.2.1
- Upgrading to SLES 11SP2
Being on version ZCM 11.1 we took a backup of
our Zone and Certificat Authority once, as described in
"Disaster Recovery Reference" chapter 1.1: "A zenworks server only needs
to be backed up once".
The database and content-repo area were backed up continiously. The
latest db/content backup has been on version 11.2.1.

Our Installation procedure to replace the first (and only) primary
server with a new one:
- Installing new SLES 11SP2 with the same DNS-Name and IP
- Installing ZCM 11.2 with the same zone details
- Upgrading immediately to ZCM 11.2.1 following the readme_5146350.html
"ZCM 11.2.1 upgrade manual import file"

Doing that, there were no errors or problems so far and finally e.g.
"zac -agp" returns Version 11.2.1 for all components.

Then we start restoring as described in "Disaster Recovery Reference",
"Replacing an existing Primary server with a new one".
No errors so far, but after restoring our zone_backup file, "zac -agp"
returns Agent-Version

Comparing the files under /etc/opt/novell/zenworks before and after
restoring zone_backup, we could determine differences in the follwing

after :

after :

before: 11.2.0
after : 11.1.0

Does "zman zenserver-backup" stores information about the current zcm
version ?

To test, if this problem is purely cosmetic, we replaced the files with
the files from "before restore zone_backup" and restarted ZCM.

Everything seems to be ok, all versions are on 11.2.1.

- Is this really a purely cosmetic problem, or what has to be done to
go on with this situation?
- does this mean, each time after updating zcm, a new zone_backup is to
be taken to get the right version information included in the
zone_backup file?

Many thanks in advance!
