    Sims moved to a new domain

    We have combined our domains today something I know some people agree with and some don't but we took our time thinking about this.

    Anyway I have a connection error when I try to log onto sims ( I have just got home so I haven't got the error message to hand, but its a connection issue ops: ) , but have I forgotten something really silly. Permisions on the sims folder have been change to allow all sims users on the new domain to have modify access and the sims user group are local admins on the workstations (anyone know how to do this remotely)

    I have spoken to our local sims support and gone through their suggestions with now luck I was just hoping someone could think of something I may have forgotten.

    Re: Sims moved to a new domain

    I could be the connect ini file.

    IS the drive used for sims mapped for the user having problems. Ours is mapped to S:\ to sims installation folder.

    Sometimes when we get problem with server and they have not reboted (drives not mapped) we see this sort of issue.

    hope it helps

    Re: Sims moved to a new domain

    OK i have the faut code now

    9799-2185-4000
    Absolute path information is required : System ArgumentException

    If I try to log onto sims on the server it is fine and it is also ok on the one win2000 (bromcom) workstation we still have.

    any suggestions?

    Re: Sims moved to a new domain

    Notes Fault Code :
    9799-2185-4000

    Absolute path information is required: system arguement exception

    Error occurs after double clicking on SIMS .net and the Userid and Password has been entered.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Advice Check the preoperties of MY DOCUMENTS. Ensure that the User has FULL CONTROL to the folder specified in Target Folder Location.
    Group Policies may have been set up incorrectly and they are restricting User Access.

    To test this out, create a new User on the domain and run SIMSPERM.BAT and then see if that Userid can run SIMS .net

    Re: Sims moved to a new domain

    djm968 thanks for the reply I saw this but it don't seem to be the problem.

    Users "my documents" are their home folders they did have modify but I have tried raising to full control with no luck

    "Group policies may be restricting access" I have two users in the admin OU that are having no problems.

    All PCs are the same model and the same RIS image

    "To test this out, create a new User on the domain and run SIMSPERM.BAT and then see if that Userid can run SIMS .net" Do I run this as the new user?

    Re: Sims moved to a new domain

    can they at least read the folders between the root of the share and their home folder?

    I had to add a read to "this folder only" for the levels below when redirecting my documents to a folder that wasn't root. This also breaks things in office 2003

    Re: Sims moved to a new domain

    I have spent the entire day today comparing two pcs one work one doesn't.

    I think i may have finally found the problem the ones that work are using my documents on the local machine, something I don't want, and the that are not working have a networked my documents.

    I have redirected admin staffs my documents to their home folder using the group policy setting and given them full control as I assume Sims requires. This doesn't work (or at least it didn't for me).

    Coulds I ask how other people have their sims users setup with referance to :-

    Profiles
    Home folder
    Permissions
    Folder redirection
    Have I missed anything?

    My users have their home folder st in Active Direcory H: \\server\share\username

    Profiles are roaming profiles \\server\share\username

    Home folders they have full Access

    Folder redirection my documents basic redirection redirect to users home folder.
