    Migrate SIMS from LA-hosted to local in school

    Hi,

    Has anyone got any information on how to migrate SIMS from the local authority hosted solution to one that we run on servers in school, or any experience in doing it? It'll help with the removal of the extra login through Citrix, as well as having local control.

    Thanks.

    Can;t you just ask your LA to move SIMS to a local solution for you?

    I have asked that. They said that it is not something they offer. I was very surprised at the response, but that's why I'm asking on here.

    It shouldn't be hard. Each school is in a separate DB. If you get support from us I'm sure we could help. Passwords could be an issue.

    You could get everything installed locally on your SIMS server before hand (MS SQL, File Server, DMS etc) and get SIMS .net and FMS installed on your workstations. Then once you get the DB and DocStorage off the LA, it's simply a case of attaching the databases and moving the DocSotrage folder.You'll need a up to date setups folder to do this.

    There's no resistance from the LA for doing this, just that they don't offer any help. We should be able to arrange passwords etc.

    That's what I was thinking of doing; setting everything up first, giving a detach and attach of the DB from the LA to local and seeing how it ran. I would just like some formal documentation so that I don't fall into any issues further down the line. We only moves to SIMS in September!
