    Hmm. I've copied n pasted that connect ini exactly as it is. WHat I have noticed is when I add the [SIMSDatabases] bit, the SIMS login box does increase in size slightly (as if the dropdown box should be there) but it isn't.

    I've tried changing the screen resolution as there was a similar issue a while back. This is on windows7 - is everyone else who is working on XP?

    Ahh. I see it doesn't work if you put it in your central connect.ini file, but works if using it locally.

    Is there anyway this can be made to work if using your s:\sims\connect.ini file?

    No. You generally don't want to use the multi select on FMS and personally, you don't want to use the redirect feature (SIMS or FMS).

    Does this work if SIMS.net is on 2 different servers, with 2 different Document Servers etc...? ie. do we not need to mount the different S: drives?

    I'm guessing the drive is actually only used for the legacy apps and setups etc... now?

    Document Server (DMS) is set in the database, so yes, just the legacy stuff that lives in S: that can be a problem, ie Nova-T

    This is only a connect.ini to allow access to SIMS. The access to the doc server is controlled from the sime once you access. I have this on my office machine to allow me to connect to all of the schools in my authority.

    The sims.ini stays the same and the version is collected from what ever the local machine is on. This means that if the different server are on different versions you may get the database at different versions message

    SIMS, not FMS.

    Funny about the redirected connect.ini files - our SIMS clients all seem to have these as a default - even where SIMS has been freshly installed :/

    I've just tried modifying my connect.ini file with this however I'm not getting the drop-down box to select another database.

    Take it this doesn't work anymore with the current version of SIMS?
    You may have more than one connect.ini

    If you modded the network drive file, but the local connect.ini doesn't have a redirect then that's the issue.

    Check in the local programs files | sims folder for the connect.ini there
