Starting SIMS from scratch?
Currently we use SIMS only in the office, and the new head wants it on her laptop, and she wants the teachers to use attendance instead of paper registers. Trouble is, I've inherited this system from the LA, and as such don't have the sa password. This means when we back up, I've had to script it to stop the SIMS services, copy the relevant folders/files and then restart the services...not ideal! Also, this means I can't use dbattach to transfer the entire database to a new office machine (seeing as they are stopping XP support).
So my question is, what is involved in starting a new SIMS environment from scratch? As if it's all brand new?
