    An update to SLG2 has been made available to ensure compatibility with the SIMS 2011 Autumn Release.
    Customers on SLG2 should wait to apply the SIMS 2011 Autumn Release until the SLG2 Autumn Release has been applied to their system. Details on how to obtain this update will be distributed to you via email shortly.
    There is also an update to the Active Directory Provisioning Service.

    More fun: 2 More issues to take note of - a new release and an FMS issue.

    Autumn Release 4 is now out which has an extra issue to do with Fees sorted:

    *** SIMS 2011 Autumn Release 4 - Now available

    An updated version of the SIMS 2011 Autumn release has been made available to Independent Schools and Northern Ireland Fees users only via SOLUS to
    1) Correctly maintain the pastoral structure upon upgrade
    2) Correctly display the addresses in a registration certificate where the student has a primary contact with no address
    3) Correct an issue in Fees. The Transfer Bills functionality will now produce correct narratives for posting into the General Ledger System.
    Also there is an issue with FMS Autumn release that affects Academies who are not VAT registered. I wont bore you with the details, but take a look on SupportNet for full details.

    Why? Are you using Fees Billings? Otherwise you're not affected and shouldn't need the new re-re-re-release.

    If you are having problems, it might be worth a look at this forum thread on SupportNet: SIMS Errors
    (34392) There seem to be a number of issues where SIMS is crashing out for various reasons. It is under investigation.

    Cheers Phil I will email Gary with the issue and Case reference Number.

    Please see below the issue (Vikpaw\Witch) we are having that was investigated by us and then more at our LEA support team (Excellent by the way) who kindly provided me with the exact info they sent see below;

    "In Cover 7.
    1. We have a class with a teacher(ST) and no room if we assign this teacher (ST) to cover another class we do not get the displace class option, this is a change from 7.140.
    2. Cover is setup in half period mode if try and assign teacher(ST) to this group as well, we do not get the option to displace the room for this class and the class has !NCR, however if we do the same for the second half of the period we do get the option to displace the room and all is ok."

    Thanks

    Cheers Vikpaw I have noticed that you haven't installed the SIM's updates when they sort of say they should be installed by , I was just wondering how you get round Census as I always get told by our LEA if I don't install the SIM's updates we won't be able to do Census or some other school critical thing we don't use FMS so is usually something to do with Census or Exams.

    Sorry if this is a bit off thread.

    As @glennda said, i'm in the middle east, so we're an independent and don't need to upgrade. Though we do have to keep at least 2 upgrades behind to maintain support, assuming we need it that is.

    I'm actually contemplating Spring 12, if there are no big issues over the coming weeks. The changes to FMS and Fees look particularly appealing to us.

    I had an issue with ISO image, upgrading from Autumn 11 (r1) to Spring 12 with it missing a patch file. Be interested if you find the same thing.
