Solus Automated Upgrades
I was wondering if anyone has a solution to this. Working at the LEA, we have an automated script running solus in the scheduled tasks:
"C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net\SOLUS.exe"
/SERVER=<servername> /DATABASE=SIMS /USER=<user> /PASSWORD=<simspassword>
/FMSSERVER=<servername> /FMSDATABASE=<fmsdatabasename> /FMSUSER=<USER> /FMSPASSWORD=<FMSPASSWORD>
/AUTO=downloadandupgrade /agreetoterms /FORCEUPGRADE
The weird thing is that half of schools are running the tasks with no problems, the other half are getting a warning about: "Publisher could not be verified are you sure you want to run this software."
This then requires user interaction to move the install along. The offical line from capita was:
This problem will be resolved in the September Release of Sims.net.
All the files will be digitally signed so that Windows can accept them without a fault.
Please select yes for each of the questions that appear.
Anyone found a way of automating through this
I've written a script that reads %windows%\sims.ini then gets the sims directory, which then creates a shortcut (and a scheduled task)
I run solus.exe /config:autosolus.ini rather then doing it as a command line. This way it's easier to update and you don't have issues with regards to command line limits.
As for the fact your getting messages about signs, I would make sure you've installed the cert. other then that, contact SIMS Support.
autosolus.ini looks like:
Try editing the sims.ini of your server so that the simssetupsdirectory path is the local physical drive eg c:\Simsshare\Sims\Setups and not a mapped drive eg S:\Sims\Setups
Capita strikes again. All the files should have been digitally signed all along, so that we can trust they are what Capita have intended to issue and not been modded by a man in the middle or similar. It's not expensive to do.
