    Upgrade Primary to SuSE 12 ?

    Hi all: Is there a supported way to upgrade an existing ZCM primary running on SuSE 11.4 to SuSE 12.x?

    Presumably, since SUSE is the business unit, by "SuSE" you mean SUSE
    Linux Enterprise Server (SLES).

    Ignoring ZENworks for a minute, upgrading from SLES11 SP4 to SLES12 SP3
    is only supported via an off-line upgrade using media. However SLES12
    SP3 doesn't appear to be supported by ZENworks 2017 even with Update 1
    so that means SLES12 SP2 is the latest you could currently upgrade to.
    Upgrading from SLES11 SP4 to SLES12 SP2 is supported on- or off-line.

    Personally given the significant changes with SLES12 I'd look at
    installing ZENworks 2017 (Update 1) on a freshly installed SLES12 SP2
    server then migrating across.

    Ah just before hitting send I've just spotted the following note on the
    ZENworks 2017 Update 1 System Requirements page[1]

    --begin--
    If ZENworks is already installed on the system, do not perform a major
    in-place upgrade of the operating system (for example, from SLES 11 SP4
    to SLES 12) as this might cause issues and the Primary Servers might
    have to be replaced.
    ---end---

    HTH.
