    Is Solus3 playing up?

    Can't seem to deploy SIMS to workstations at the moment, get the well known error of:

    Unable to define target type, module has not been loaded

    Can't access http://s3ws.capitasolus.co.uk/ and recent deployment logs have been showing on clients I'm trying to redeploy to are showing (504) Gateway Timeout errors.

    Anyone else having an issue? I'm putting a call in.

    You could request your LA for the latest SIMSApplicationSetup.exe
    If they do send it to you make sure they also send the signature file as well.

    The response I've had: "Solus 3 is down at the moment and no ETA of when it will be fixed."

    Oh dear.....

    I've been trying to do the Summer updates for FMS, SIMS and Discover but I can't because despite having already downloaded them Solus insists on checking with Capita before installing.

    Genius.

    So, I have to try to schedule another time this week when I can try and keep everyone off SIMS without knowing when Capita will actually have this appalling software working (at least to some extent) again.

    Then we can see which PC's have randomly decided not to update, and then we can see which new bugs Capita have decide to bestow upon us.

    I love Solus3 so much that sometimes it almost hurts. I can definitely see why Capita chose to ignore all standard installers and foisted this upon us instead. It really does enliven my otherwise incredibly dull and tedious work.

    I think that I might suggest to Capita that they allow us to deploy other software with Solus3, as I can't imagine any other application deployment system working as well as this.

    Oh. This might explain some things then! Today is the first day I've sat down to look at SOLUS 3 to start using it!

    Right - so I'm still getting 'Unable to define target type, module has not been loaded' errors ! I've yet to recieve an e-mail from my call raised this morning saying it's been resolved. Tried restarting Solus3 services. So, no, it hasn't been resumed.

    That was the same error I was getting. I'll wait until tomorrow and try it again.

    Progress at last!

    Looks to be back online now (for the moment at least).

    Edit: DOH! Now it's back off again

    Iv'e just received the following notification:

    The following patch(s) has been released to you and can be downloaded via the SOLUS Wizard:
    Patch: Patch 18525 [896-897] (Consolidated Exams patch)

    When I go to download the latest updates I don't even get the message "There are no downloads" it just shuts down the "Connecting to CCS update server to check for updates" after a few seconds, strange!

    Will give it a couple of days
