    SOLUS3 3.4.103

    Hi,

    Has anyone upgraded SOLUS3 to 3.4.103 yet? Whats new in this release?

    Also does anyone know if you can go from 3.4.24 straight to 3.4.103? I only ask as a few of our schools where we haven't yet made the transition to SOLUS3 are still on 3.4.24, i just wondered if i'm going to have to go over them and upgrade to 3.4.64 first and then do 3.4.103.

    I've read quite a few negative comments about SOLUS3 but its going ok here so far, we have had a few issues along the way but they have turned out to be more issues with the schools network such as DNS etc than SOLUS3.

    Thanks

    Would install the new version. You can go from any version of SOLUS3 to the new version.

    It's resolved (not yet checked), if your SQL service is stopped\times out, but the S3 service is still running it thinks it needs to re-reg it's self.
    Redeploy is very useful
    Fix with deploying FMS where it would only deploy FMS Apps and not BDE, SQL 2005 Native client etc.
    You ping the clients every x mins to confirm the online\offline status - useful for laptops as they tent to just disappear and poor s3 is stuck thinking it's online when in fact it's offline - Network traffic hasn't increased greatly - maybe 1~4kb for every 10 workstations.

    How do I get the latest update? I thought the point of Solus 3 was that updates would be released automatically however, I seem to have to contact Capita each time I need an update via Solus 3, for both Solus and SIMS updates. Does anyone else have this issue? Our school doesn't have SIMS updates managed by the LA.

    Well SIMS is currently withdrawn, the others - FMS Autumn 11 and SOLUS3 3.4.103 should automatically get released to single sites and LAs (which you are?) - LA managed have to wait on the LA to authorise as they tend to have a master plan and do additional testing.

    I've just spoken to the helpdesk about this (didn't get chance on Friday) and was told that 3.4.64 was the latest version available and that the Solus 3 update was withdrawn also.

    Didn't think it seemed right, but the guy I spoke to went and checked with someone else and they both came back and said that 3.4.64 was the latest version. Will hope @PhillNeal checks the thread and replies and I'll phone helpdesk back again.....

    Just installed 3.4.103 today and a few niggles are fixed but it's still a bit irritating that if you re-image your machines you'll get loads of redundant entries in the database due to the UID SOLUS assigns them. SOLUS doesn't seem to detect that they no longer have the client installed (it's not built into our image and it wouldn't help if it was due to the UID anyway) and you can't just re-deploy the client on it's own so you still have to use the remove PC option and then re-install again (along with re-deploying SIMS, FMS and Discover). It's a bit anoying and time consuming to do that if you've just deployed an image to 600 or so PCs.

    So far so good though and no great reliability issues so far.
