SIMS FMS permissions problems
We are running a RM CC3 network and I have followed all of the RM instructions to create a FMS package
For permissions “Management information users” have full write access to “C:\Program Files\SIMS\FMSSQL” and the users in question are members of the security group.
But still I am getting an error when trying to create a new JV the following error message appears.
On the capita support .net the solution is the usual “Please ensure FMS users have local administrator access rights on the workstation FMS is being used”
I really don’t want to take Capita’s advice and unlock the users to have full admin on the workstation!
Dose anyone have any other specific locations that permissions need changing to make this work.

RM provide a script which does all the permissions for SIMS. Have you set this to run for each user?

Thanks I might have missed that one.
I’ve had a look round RM support but can’t find it. Could you joust point me to the correct place?

Could you not just use Simsperm.exe?
We use the following in a cmd file.

It's the Set Environment.

Logon as administrator, run FMS, run a report (can't remember which one), basically so you end up with c:\PDOXUSRS.NET, give the user full control of it.

This indeed was the solution. To add to that I did the following:

You can of course just change the settings with the Borland admin utility. Have to find it in program files and run as administrator on vista/7 as it won't save the settings when just run from control panel.
I just create a special folder, set the permissions and point it at that.
Even tells you how in the 6.91 release documents for example http://www.capitasolus.co.uk/Release...S/fms691ra.pdf

I took the SubInAcl command from the simsperm.bat file to give permissions to C:\PDOXUSRS.NET to just the appropriate user (or, in our case, a security group named "KS-SEC-ADMIN" in our domain named "CAMELOT"):

Umm... ok, hello yr old topic.
For Win7\Vista you need to move the file into a subfolder, I recommend moving pdoxusr.dat into c:\sims. So to install FMS it's:
· Run S:\Setups\SIMSInfrastructureSetup.EXE
o Select FMS Workstation components > then Install
· Open BDE Administrator from Control Panel
o Select Configuration tab
o Expand Configuration > Drivers > Native
o Select PARADOX
o Change the NET DIR to C:\SIMS
o Click Object > Apply
o Click OK to confirm saving changes.
o And OK to confirm message.
o Close BDE Administrator
· Run S:\Setups\FMS\FMSApplicationSetup.exe
o Destination Folder: C:\Program Files\SIMS\FMSSQL
· Copy S:\sims\fmsconnect.ini to C:\Program Files\SIMS\FMSSQL
· Give the user or user group (e.g. Authenticated Users) full control of the following files and folders:
o C:\Program Files\SIMS\

- Rep Power
Similar fix here, I fixed various errors in FMS for a user by copying my PDOX... file into their computer, opening it with notepad and changing only my username which was in that file to their one. Worked immediately.

No, please don't do that. All you need to do is give users access to it. FMSINST will place pdoxusr.dat in the ProgramData folder for Win7, so it works out-of-the-box.
