    I've merged you in. I don't think anyone has got any far yet, we're all sitting on the fence. I've downloaded the ISOs but not used them yet. Maybe tomorrow on the test server.

    As a school with SLG hosted by Capita we have to wait until after the SLG is updated which Capita have said will be 10th March. I will wait a few weeks after that before taking the plunge.

    Still having problems with DBAttach. A 2nd school is failing to login after detaching/backup. Not doing any upgrade until I know I can restore.

    Exclamation SIMS Spring 2012 discover

    On another note, does anyone know the download location for the zip file, so i can also deploy it manually?

    The package is actually flagged as 'Cannot be auto-deployed' with the red explanation sign so I don't think it's to do with missing prerequisites.

    Sorry, we can't have links posted to the software. The downloads were covered in @matt40k 's original post and should be available on SupportNet:

    Discover
    An update to Discover has been made and is available on SOLUS3. Full details are in the Release Note uploaded to Supportnet as resource ID: 19071.

    For those customers not yet on SOLUS3 a CD image is available for download on
    <See SupportNet resource 19073>
    The password to access it is: <See SupportNet resource 19073>

    Just to point out, you have to be on the latest stable release of Autumn 11 to upgrade to Spring 12. So if you applied the Autumn release, make sure you had the latest incarnation. There doesn't appear to be an upgrade path from the initial release which was later superceded.

    It's okay if you never went to Autumn 11.

    This is based on my test server where i had Autumn 1st release installed and then used the Spring 12 CD iso.

    I've managed to patch it by upgrading to a later Autumn, then applying Spring again. Will report back any interesting things tomorrow.

    Ah yer, confirms what I thought, need the missing patch file (to upgrade to autumn r3). Capita are thinking that people listerned to them and no-one is using the autumn r1 release.

    Has anyone rolled this out to one of their schools yet? Any issues encountered?

    I've heard of no issues as yet. A few people have done tests, and two on SupportNet have done live upgrades with no issues as yet, across SIMS, FMS, Discover.

    Nothing reported here. I did see something on SupportNet - "Spring - deleting result removes pupil from marksheet" just not had a good look yet.
