    Please say someone knows how to disable the change password option on the new login box!

    The last things we need is our users changing passwords!
    Really? I think this is one of the best changes Capita have made in some time.

    I was thinking that too!

    We recently moved to trusted logons, so it uses their domain account instead. That way, the password is suitably complex (unlike any which you can set in SIMS) and changes every term.

    We still have a user who has to have 800 x 600. Even the Sims login screen doesn't cater for that - can't see the username; if you want to change it you have to tab and hope you got it!

    Wouldn't, say, a 19" screen or 21" screen running at 1024x768 provide the same sort of size as a smaller screen running at 800x600?

    March hasn't broken anything here on the test server, but I'll give it a week in case there's something I've missed and keep an eye on the SIMS forums for tales of woe.

    Don't leave it too late. I believe the FMS upgrade is required for year end.

    The user has a 19inch screen. It makes no difference.

    Depends on your LEA and what your previous version was.

    Only problem with trusted logons is when some prant decides to change your domain. Yes... it's happened.

    Ok, a 27" screen then. 800x600 is simply ridiculous now days, as no software will support it. Is it an actual medical reason that they require that size of image?

    Also, as they've got a 19" screen, what did they do when 15" screens were normal? 640x480?

    Yeah, part of it is, but It's just SIMS I'm delaying, we're on November 08 (minimum SIMS req for FMS) and FMS is usually painless.

    There is a typo in the FMS release notes that says the FMS upgrade is dependent on a SIMS minimum version of November 08, but then has 7.116 in brackets immediately after.

    I've finally got round to updating my test simsserver, takes a good old while to install!

    Be nice to have a play

    ---- change password! i wish they could hide that :\ the staff have the ability to change there network passwords here and quite often the numptys forget what there typing in! all i need is for them to start doing that in SIMS as well...

    James.

    Well I got the March release on and it all looks shiney. Won't know for sure until a couple of week when the teachers return and it starts getting hammered.

    Only took 5 minutes for someone to complain about the absence of the shortcuts to the aplications (nova etc) and how could they run them. Totaly failed to read the e-mail I had already sent detailing that they had gone, and where they had gone and how to setup new shortcuts.

    Don't know why I waste my copying and pasting from Supportnet skils.

    People who read the instructions are rarely the people who actually need to.
