    Need to upgrade the database to 2008 first then will try SOLUS 3, gave it a go last year, but had some issues with S drive mapping.

    Just been reading the handbook and am about to ask a very stupid and probably very obvious question

    Do you use Trusted or SQL authentication when installing Solus3 and does it really make any difference which you use?

    First version had to be trusted, they've added SQL logins. Both have +'s and -'s

    So in terms of Solus 3 are there any benefits over one or the other?

    SOLUS3 over SOLUS2? Loads, lower end-user permissions, better scheduling, upgrades on startup rather then when the user starts SIMS, central deployment, monitoring of status of deployments (new, updates etc), list goes on.

    I think I've found a few bugs in the new 3.3.27 version that need fixing, still could be me - it's been one of those weeks. Brain overload. Will find out tomorrow.

    Sorry, meant in terms of SQL or Windows Auth for Solus 3

    Looking forward to getting Solus 3 up and running though

    Sorry to raise an old thread, but I thought it'd better here than starting a new one.

    I'm probably going to look at implementing SOLUS3 in the Summer, but our installation might not be that straight forward. Between then and now I may well be setting up a new school / SIMS DB, in a new instance, on our SIMS box. I've had a scan through the SOLUS3 docs and it talks about either an LA deployment with several schools, or in a school with one DB.

    Anyone out there installed it on one Server with two instances each with it's own SIMS DB (and Discover DB)?

    I fear this one's going to be a head-scratcher for me.
