    Another issue I have just encountered is the footprint on c. My server was installed by the CC and they only gave it 10gb for the os drive. Well I only have 1gb of space left to play with so .net is not going to be an option on that.

    New server is not an option. Can I move the partitions around or dump another drive in the machine? any recommendations.

    1) Tidy up.
    Clear some space. Delete unwanted files. Add a hard drive and move the page file there.

    2) Resize.
    How big is the hard drive in total? Is there plenty of spare space on the other partition? There are a few partition resizing tools that you could use, but it's always a scary thing. Need a good backup of all partitions in case things go wrong and you need to rebuild. I've used Partition Magic before and i think it got bought out by Norton. Easeus and Paragon have free options, but not sure if they work on Server OS. It always used to be separate software for client and server, may be different now.

    Also, Windows has limited built-in functionality for this, if under specific conditions. Need to be dynamic disk. Not sure if you can do it to the root partition though.

    3) Add a drive and make it the new C drive, rebuild from scratch, or clone the old one, using Norton Ghost. You could even virtualise onto a new disk.

    Lots of options, but depends on your skills / confidence to implement. It seems rather shortsighted of the cc to have only given 10GB. I'd contact them initially, and ask their advice because it's their fault.

    You Could move the virtual memory (page file) to an alternative drive if that hasn't been carried out.
    Or use software to resize the partition, but personnaly i would be careful using that option.
    As for p2p networks, you would be surprised at how many authorities still have p2p for their Admin networks.
    Capita support approx. 180 schools in the northwest who are p2p, so in essence, each pc will need a visit to install the Solus3 agent before the Solus ui will pick them up, Capita then advise to use Solus 3 to deploy .Net4.
    I am advising their Technical staff to start the installs now for .net 4, giving schools a bigger window to deploy Solus3.
    Solus 2 will still be around for at least another year if not longer.

    Do you know if Solus3 can deploy Sims.net onto a New workstation.
    It installs the Solus3 client, but will it install Sims?
    Thank you for your advice.

    I believe so.

    Currently Setups files are used, as Solus 3 is replacing that it has to. Or has to in the future.

    I've not had time or resources to test it yet.

    You can install SIMS onto a new machine through Solus 3. However, I've not found out how to "reinstall" SIMS yet.

    SIMS confirm

    Finally found out that Solus3 cannot deploy Sims.net to a new workstation until it has downloaded a release update.

    So basically because we installed Solus3 after the Spring 2011 update, we have to wait till Summer 2011 comes available online, download it with Solus3, then deploy it.

    Nice 1 Capita

    If you have a domain it most certainly can deploy to a new pc. Please let me have the details of who you spoke to so I can see where the confusion is. (I hope it's not me that's confused!)
    Many thanks

    @cmax - can you not just release the spring update to your domain and it will just reinstall the update. after doing that it will allow new installs. There is another thread here asking exactly that question, i'm sure, and matt40k described the process.

    EDIT: link - SOLUS 3 Deployments
    EDIT2: i think but am not sure at all, but you can download a zip of whatever update you want solus3 to use, so you can tell it to use spring 11.

    Finally had a chance to double check this and I'm afraid it was me that is confused - basically I had mis read the posting.

    The way SOLUS3 works is that it takes the download and then deploys it including to new machines. However if you have deployed already and then install SOLUS3, SOLUS3 contains nothing to deploy until the next release. So install SOLUS3 first then you can deploy SIMS. I'm told that the documentation does say this but I have to admit that if you have to read the manual there's a problem!

    So can't you download an update for SOLUS 3 that you may have already deployed, and re-deploy it? I'm sure that's what @matt40k said elsewhere. Or does it have to take it's deployment data from SOLUS 2?

    I've setup a school with SOLUS3 from scratch which was on the Spring 11 release, then re-deployed Spring 11 via SOLUS3. It's then install SIMS Apps onto a new machine. No real problems.

    Can anyone confirm whether it's extended that is needed or whether just the client will do? :-S
