    Yep, it has the latest fileset which contains all the updated validation rules required for an accurate census.

    LOL - that's the best joke I've heard this year.


    Now awaiting another fileset to correct all the problems in the current one.

    Right, full steam ahead for tomorrow:

    Just a Sanity check (ref attached Screen Shot)

    1) I am on Summer V2 at the moment, I just need to deploy Autumn 2 and it should do the rest (Discover for example)
    2) I don't need to deploy SOLUS 3.6 yet (I am on SOLUS 3.5 works ok and I'm using SQL 2008 R2)
    3) InTouch I update manually afterwards

    Capita apparently said some sites had excessive memory usage after Autumn 2 update that stops inTouch working...we shall see.

    Incidiently do you guys do a backup of SIMS, Discover DB via SQL management Studio before an update? I used to also do snapshots on hyper-V but wondering whether that is OTT...

    No, Discover is a separate installer update after doing the main sims install.

    Thank you,

    So should a Discover Update (For SOLUS 3.5 or below) be a downloadable option? Should I check with Capita?

    I think you need solus 3.6 for the discover update

    And yes I always backup with sqlbackupandftp before any upgrades. Infact I do that each night anyway just in case.

    Re-discover backup, use the specific Discover backup tool. It backs up all custom data graphs and groups users have created in Discover. If you ever need to restore Discover, install a new discover system, do a data transfer from SIMS .net to Discover, then restore the backup with the discover backup utility.
