Student photos not showing for all students after 10.3 upgrade
Since upgrading to 10.3 we had difficulty viewing the photographs of some students in eportal whilst others displayed fine. A check of security rights showed that all images had the same security settings and the Settings.xml file was checked and correct.
After some indepth diagnostics we discovered that student photographs with an upper case extension [.JPG] failed to display whilst others with [.jpg] displayed as normal. Renaming all of the files to a common lower case extension resolved the issue.
Work around / fix:-
cd facility\eportal\webapps\eportal\eportal\images\st uphotos
copy *.jpg *.jp1
copy *.jp1 *.jpg

Thanks for the post. This should always of been the case as far as i know, i know i've come across this as many as 4 years ago.
Another way of resolving it is
rename *.jpg *.JPG
or the other way around as appropriate.
Also, you've got one too many eportal's in your path - please check that's a typo on here and your install isn't actually like that or you'll have problems.
It's always good to see people being proactive in solving any problems.
Also, it's worth me mentioning, it will use whatever you specify in settings .xml - if it's in there in upper case, it will use upper, in there in lower case, it will use lower.

Thanks Mic for your reply.
Although it always was the case I had all the photos visible in 10.2 but not in 10.3 until they were renamed.
Strange, but it may prove useful to someone.
