    I thought they supported two previous releases, not just current and previous. I'm not counting the two Spring's as separate.

    So I tried SOLUS this morning and I've still got Autumn 4th release (FEES) and FMS 7.142 sat there plus half a dozen patches. I can't call 'em to release the new one cos technically I'm not supported!

    I thought new releases would automagically appear HELP

    Every single patch has come up with an error e.g.

    Unknown Error whilst applying package : Patch 16067 [749-749]

    That was an example, most of them have done that, and even the SIMS upgrade failed. I've run SOLUS two more times and it seems to have applied the packages now. It still ended with a update failed message, but now it's showing nothing needing to be downloaded or applied.
    I asked Support to release Spring, but it could take a few days apparently, so i'm going to use the ISO i downloaded.
    Really annoyed at how long it's taking. Plus the patch that i really wanted to enable unicode which didn't work on my old install, wont run cos i'm now on too advanced a database.
    Now i remember why i only do upgrades once a year!

    SOLUS3 now set to deploy the Spring re-release over the weekend!

    One expects no problems this time after we finally cracked the deployment of the original Spring Release!
    All our SOLUS Issues were caused my mismatches as a result of being part of the field trial that we never got to work. Now, hopefully , all will operate smoothly!

    All sorted, on server. Upgraded machines for SLT and key staff, including FMS, tested staff users for upgrading their own. Works fine, some get a prompt due to UAC i think asking if they want to let the program upgrade their computer, they hit yes a couple of times, and bingo. Takes 3 mins.

    Interesting...................

    All workstations/laptops that were left on over the weekend have upgraded from 7.144.33 to 7.144.36 but users get the pdf saying that SIMS has upgraded to Autumn 2011! Good job I was the first to spot this - at least I can tell all users to ignore it!

    And the good news is that SOLUS3 has worked perfectly this time, for those machines that were online. Here's hoping that the second stage works when users log their laptops on to the network. There'll be a few that try to access SIMS first tho' before the agent SOLUS runs! Despite my warnings!

    The PDF thing was SOLUS3 not updating the documentation in s:\sims. Is the File Server set correctly in SOLUS3 - it isn't a mapped drive but a physical drive on the server? Have you logged it with Capita?

    Our Solus did those that switched on the following day without an issue (barring the people who had managed to open SIMS before the update had kicked in).

    Solues 3 seems to be getting better, if only it could kick in quicker then the staff....

    They should be "fixing" that 2 mins wait in the next version. So fingers crossed.

    Not logged it yet Matt, my Technical expert colleague was not in school today - need to see him first!
    As for the Autumn PDF - remember we had already upgraded to 7.144.33!

    Not sure why ours did not pick up the previously offline machines, this morning. Previously we have had the deployment still 'active' waiting for the machines to come back on line. Over the weekend we got a 'partially successful' deployment. Could that be a time factor issue?
