Install permissions...? SIMS S:\ drive.
After moving the SIMS installation, SQL and all to our 2008 server from our 2003 server (thanks to EDUGEEK members), I have now come to install my first workstation.
I have mapped an S:\ drive and navigated to simsinst.exe and run it....
Firstly it gave me a error that it could not write to the S:\SIMS folder, but I clicked again anyway and it installed and upgraded to Summer realease.
Then I tried to open SIMS and it asked me for the connect.ini which I pointed to the S:\SIMS drive as usual and clicked OK....
Can anyone shed some light on what might be the issue?
When I copied the SIMS folder over to the new server, I'm not sure I looked at sharing/permissions of the folder, could that be the issue?
The folder itself is named D:\SIMSROOT and is shared (network path is \\SERVER\Sims$) NTFS share (advanced sharing) is Sims$, permission Everyone - Full Control.
Security is Authenticated Users and Users everything but Full Control.
I can't even see what the permissions were on the old server as I have taken that share off...
