    SIMS Autumn (Winter) 2013

    Hi,

    Has anyone applied the Autumn upgrade yet?


    • Did it work?
    • Do XP clients still load?
    • Did a Server 2003 server process it?
    • Anyone do it with SOLUS 3?



    Well done to Capita for having it out on the scheduled release date. (reserving judgement)

    Are you crazy? It was only released Friday! No chance that will be done this week.

    We are looking to deploy 6th January as it's an inset day - and if there is a Autumn 2 version hopefully it will be by then too so that can get slapped on at the same time!

    Nope, Echo Cullingsh solus hasn't picked up the download yet. Will probably be rolling out on the 17th Dec.

    I'm waiting for the second release (there's always a second release!)

    Why can't they get it right the first time around?

    Our LEA hasn't released it yet, and probably won't for a while going by past releases.

    However, with those questions, I'd say "why would you be doing that?". The MIS is the single most important system in your school, risking it on unsupported software is a bad idea as there's the potential it could mess things up for you. Not to mention, you'd be in a pickle as it'd be unsupported by Capita anyway.

    No worries - Just thought I'd qualify. I've a vested interest in knowing what happens to those sorts of sites.

    Someone will do it first, and they'll probably be someone who frequents these forums.
    Someone will do with a mixed economy of XP / 7, again hopefully they're someone on here.
    Some poor soul will risk their arm running it on Server 2003.

    TBH - I was just a bit surprised that nobody had already posted a specific "Autumn Upgrade" thread (the other one is a bit off topic) and figured I'd pop one up.

    I'm in the process of building our test VM's with it on at the moment so my colleagues can crack on with the internal LA testing.

    As it's needed for Census, it's going to be a tight window with Christmas in between!
