Yes, setup the document management server in sims. tested ok. Checked the config file in C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net Document Server
and this shows it pointing to c:\docstorage.
If i move the files from the sims directory to the docstorage directory, when I then try to run a file it says it does not exist.
In the docstorage directory is there another directory with the same name as the server?
No there is no folder structure under docstorage. Normally this gets created when reports are imported.
Or you could just create the folder structure mentioned above and then move or copy the folders under the old doc storage area named 00,01,02 I think to this?
i use the dmconfig.exe held in C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net Document Server :
because it's always a bit odd doing it from within SIMS.Code:
Plus, whenever i move server, rename server (all virtual of course) the Docstorage seems to go back to a weird default of C:\SIMS !
It's not something within the SIMS.ini that is causing that Vik?
This all looks fairly straightforward - is it truly that simple or is there a (higher than normal) chance of things going hideously wrong?
Stupid thing doesn't set the correct sql 2008 backup path correct, you have to select it (middle option), then custom path (bottom option) and add "\backup"
Failing that you have to use the setsimsbackuppath to change it. Otherwise you end up with backup files in:
Still minor issue, never heard of any truely bad thing happening.
The people who write those documents manage 30gb databases for a living. We support a 2gb database, but it's not our only job. Splitting the mdf and ldf up may indeed increase performance, but the support aspect it drastically increased. So much so it's cheaper, easier to just get faster hard drives.
Yeh one single point of failure can also be a good thing ;) 2 drives = twice as likely for one of them to fail.
Anyway with the advent of SSD drives I have not had a drive fail in a long time.
Well if the data is split between two "drives"*...
* single hard drive \ raid array \ crystals (as seen on stargate TM)
