We want to upgrade from 11.2.3 to 11.3.0a.

We are a small office with < 100 users. We have two primary servers and one satellite server off site. The primary servers are SLES 11 SP2 and use the embedded Sybase database.

In the upgrade documentation, under Prerequisites there is the following line that confuses me

(Recommendation) For server upgrade both OEM ZENworks database and Audit database cannot be present on the same device; different devices have to host the databases.

So, is it recommended to have the databases on different devices or required (cannot be present on the same device)? Does that mean I have to create a new server to host the audit database? What does this line mean exactly.

Thank you for your help.
