I've just had the most perfect sims installation experience.
Brand new virtual Windows 2008 R2 box, SQL 2008 R2, clean installable of SIMS, restore of last nights backup, and all works perfectly, barring getting logins to work but i'll write about that elsewhere in the dbattach backups thread.
Upgrade to Spring 11 by CD, not a problem in sight.
Just need to put Office 2010 and see if i can edit reports templates and other tasks with not errors. It's all gravy so far
If anyone has any functionality they would like me to test, let me know, as i need to put it through it's paces before i make it live at Easter.
Plan for tomorrow is to install FMS - that wont be a easy i have a feeling.

I've just had it released to us today - anybody jumped in and upgraded? anything broken?

Nothing broken, a problem with some of the new features in FMS if your an academy.

Is it all working nicely with Office 2010 now?
22nd April 2011, 03:22 PM #21
Its been working ok with office 2010 before the upgrade - although I still need to find a way to disable office asking if you want to enable content all the time as you have to click enable content before it allows the macros etc to run.

Like VikPaw, I have just done a clean install from the Spring 2010 Install ISO, then the Spring 2011 Upgrade ISO. This, too, is on a new VM with Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 R2. Absolutely flawless.

SOLUS3 was a nightmare for us though! It took 3 days and numerous calls to Capita Helpdesk to get it sorted - and we had to revert to SOLUS2.
The silly thing is that we trialled SOLUS3 and it seemed ok then! Never mind - at least Capita have the case details to get it improved for next time!

Upgraded ours over easter and seems to be running fine so far.
We used Solus 2 for the main upgrade and all workstations auto updated this morning with only a few probs.

Quick Search Wildcards
Shameless Double Post from SupportNet but it's quite useful i think so worth mentioning in case no one noticed yet:
Just thought i'd point out as i've not seen it mentioned elsewhere, but as with the regular student browse, you can use wildcards in the quick search.
It's proved really popular here, especially because it's faster than lightning, and so more people are using it, and so have discovered for example that if you search for a name that contains a space, the search will fail, as it treats the words separately.
This wasn't an issue with regular student browse as it only looked in the one field either surname / forename so could take a space.
However the regular SQL wildcards will work so you can use a ? for a single missing character or an * for any number of missing characters. :O)
regular search for "al saud" - works fine.
quick search "al saud" - fails.
quick search "al?saud" - works.
quick search "alj???i" - gives me aljabri
quick search "alj?????i" - gives me aljuffali
quick search "alj*i" - gives me aljabri, aljuffali, and aljaouni
:O) It's useful for me anyway.

Also, issues i've had with editing Individual Reports in Office 2010, are no longer there, which is great.
@glennda - You can turn off the enable content by just dropping Macro Security.
File | Options | Trust Center | Trust Center Settings | Macro Settings
then set to Enable All,
however it's for all documents so a slight security risk, but i've always done it for ease of use. I think that's what you were looking for.

I think thats what i'm after - i will have a play - students can't download anything from the net which are word docs enless its from webmail or our VLE (to stop plagarism!) and i hope staff are sensible (although we all know what happens when we say that!)

We discovered an excess of Dames. Patch 15679 fixes it apparently. KB107044

I've now run into a problem since the Spring update (or the server migration); Some / All our double lessons are now treated as Singles in Lesson Monitor. Ho hum. There are about three patches and a promise to fix it in the Summer update. I'll see what Capita have to say...

Just in case you missed it, this topic on SupportNet is pertinent: Double Periods (31565).
