    Moving SIMS\FMS to a new server

    Has anyone moved SIMS\FMS to a new server only to have the setups directory pointing to the old server?

    Ideally you want it to read the mapped drive, however it normally puts in the UNC path (\\server1).

    I've got a script that will correct this, is there anyone out there who has this problem who would like to test it?

    We didn't get that as our connect.ini file pointed to the sims network drive. Although its fairly easy to fix still annoying though!

    Yer, 7 desktops no problem. 100+ laptops = a nightmare. Thus the "patch" \ "fix"

    I've also got a SA password reset, and SIMS .net SYSMAN password reset
