    i do feel for you sims schools.

    /start smugness

    upgraded cmis thursday, beat my record of 34mins!
    managed to do a backup, windows updates x3 servers(app, database,eportal), install cmis, let it do its database checks/upgrade, install eportal, install eportal patch, defrag 3 servers. reboot servers all in 27mins.

    all went well and i probably wont have to look at the servers again till next patch tuesday!

    i think cutting out the coffee making helped speed things up, although i am sure i could slip that back in a better time in the process.

    /end smugness

    of course it wasn't always like this!

    Below is an up to date list of issues that will be resolved with this re-release.

    1) Unable to print timetables in SIMS .net after applying the May release.
    Let's hope not. If it is then it's just another thing I have to remember to setup when I create images.

    just insert the netbios domain name and the script is ready to go.

    The user need to be logged out of sims when run.
    Thanks a lot... this has calmed down all our staff. Good work Penfold.

    Now perhaps SIMS can catch up. I'm still totally amazed that after all this time they can fall foul of the space in a path name problem, I thought all Windows programmer knew of the potential problem by now.

    2) The Document Management Server does not work for some users after applying the May Release.

    When using SIMS .net with a non-Microsoft authenticating proxy server or a Microsoft proxy server with a user account in a different domain you may encounter problems accessing your document management server.

    To correct this problem open Internet Explorer and go to the Connections tab. Click the LAN Settings button and in the Window that appears ensure the the “Bypass proxy server for local addresses” button is checked. Now click the Advanced button and in the Exceptions area of the new Window enter the name of your proxy server. Entries should be separated with a semi-colon. On restarting SIMS .net you should now be able to access your document management server.

    Please refer to KB79774 for further details.

    I'd best post this on this thread too.Bypassing the proxy server to use the proxy server?
    Surely that should be
    Now click the Advanced button and in the Exceptions area of the new Window enter the name of your Document Server

    Error Changing Temp Path

    I don't get an error, I just don't see any change in the path for the temp variables and SIMS doesn't register the change either.

    I am using the correct Netbios Domain name.

    Any further help would be more than welcomed...

    Cheers Penfold, as HeeBeeJeeBee suggested I needed the domain name in caps.

    I apologise for blaming your script...

    Hi

    No worries, my fault as i couldn't be bothered to write a million lines of vb script to get the netbios name.

    Will do next time.

    I've got a problem with the DocumentServer and people trying to run reports. I use a proxy.pac file to redirect staff to the proxy or not depending on different circumstances. This means that I cannot add the exception the proxy server, as we don't explicitly set the proxy in LAN Connections.

    Here is the IF statement from the pac file to return (or not) the proxy server:-

    Code:
    function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
    {
    // variables for returning proxy or no proxy
    var proxy_yes = "PROXY 10.250.(DELETED):3128"
    var proxy_no = "DIRECT"
    
    // machine is NOT on school network OR address is in local domain OR SIMS fix - NO Proxy
    if ((!isInNet(myIpAddress(), "10.250.0.0", "255.255.0.0")) ||
    	dnsDomainIs(host, ".curriculum.com")  ||
    	isInNet(host, "10.250.(DELETED)", "255.255.255.255"))
    	{return proxy_no;}
    else
    	return proxy_yes;
    }
    the "isInNet" string 10.250..... matches the proxy address

    What I need to know is how SIMS is sending a request when looking for the document server, is it using IP/hostname of the SIMS server etc. etc? Or another way of editing the proxy file so that it creates the same fix as the Capita suggested solution. I'm going to keep playing as well.

    Thanks

    }

    I would say it was using that was defined in the Document Server Setup, which is more than likely the host name.
