x2Online - the only thing I can think of is that the upgrade size is causing the network to overload. Please send me your details and I will get it investigated.
Hi, I have applied the revised May release however I am still getting the same document server error; "Unable to find a document server. Please check in Tools, System Setup". I also put in the fixes outline in the KB release.
Any clues, this is driving me mad :-(
I did email them a couple of weeks ago to let them know that it probably should be to bypass the proxy server for the Document Management Server but it seems they don't see enough of a problem with leaving incorrect advice up to what has already been a contentious upgrade and secondary patch.
Is there anyway SimS updates can be done without admin rights on the client side?
I am only just starting out in the SIMS world of management and at the moment our clients need admin rights to update each client, which means i have to manually go around each staff machine and log in myself to do the updates?
It may be something i have done to make it this way so i am open to any suggestions.
I've done the upgrade (a) as opposed to the several patches/work arounds.
HodgeHi, there are ways to allow your client to do the upgrades but I'm not certain of them off the top of my head so I'm sure someone will comment with them. - We don't have the problem here as our staff users hold local admin rights on their PCs.
I don't think admin rights is the way to go with our staff ;-)
One can't open a padlock on the laptop trolley even when the Combination is entered already.
WE don't give users admin rights and they can install upgrades. Have to say though, can't remember how we did it. I think it is just permissions on the sims folders. Doesn't simsperm.bat (titter) do this?
We set Everyone to have read / write permissions on the SIMS folder and this gets us around giving everybody full admin rights to the workstations.
This seems to work fine for us.
The standard SIMS set up allows you to upgrade without Admin rights.
I have just remembered both staff and pupils have restricted access to C drive via GPO. This i think could have a huge impact on their installation abilities.
