    Fortunatly the admin machines and thus SIMS aren't my problem here. I *think* that the people who manage them for us in lancs (the westfield centre) have a SUS/WSUS server setup for the machines to update off.

    Dos_Box can probably find out more.

    I dont know why this sould cause you trouble? i have an application server running multiple MSDE instances for sophos, wsus etc and it runs fine, only thing that annoys me is i have to install all the sql patches twice :grrr:

    Re: install updates

    I take it eejit was refering to MSDE SQL 2000 [think thats the one] and Anywhere SQL [or whatever it is] for personel/finance. At least thats what we have to do until sims/powys SIMS support pull their finger out and get that into sims .net like everything else

    WSUS shouldnt drain your server's resources too much

    Get a cheap HP ML150 SATA based server for it It'll cost about 1k or less with the usual bits 'n' bobs and vol license

    Re: install updates

    Even on SIMS.net you have to use Anywhere SQL for FMS ... the new version based on M$ SQL will not be available for at least 6-12 months.

    It will be part of the move of Personell to M$ SQL as well.

    SIMS.net still uses 4 different databases. SIMS.net, NOVA, Personell, FMS.

    All schools using Capita products should be moved onto a single database by Dec 2007.
