We move server for Syspro version 6 recently and had to update 40 users ODBC connections. The easiest way to complete this was to fix the odbc setting on one computer , then export the registry for the ODBC setting. We moved that exported reg file to our server and sent all Syspro users a link to the registry file which updated the PC’s.
This is a sample of the file contents – you would need to change “YOURSERVER”
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
We also had an issue with DCOM on the server, when enabling business object. The server was MS 2003 and the only way to get the system to operate was to make to posting user an administrator. This was documented in a tech PDF from syspro as noted below. If you know of any other solution please leave me a comment – thanks
Remote calls made by certain users fail
Changes introduced in Service Pack 1 (SP1) of Windows 2003 Server has resulted in the
failure of remote calls made by users who are not members of either the Administrators
or Distributed COM Users groups on the server.
You need to configure the account permissions for remote access to the server (review
the procedure: Configuring account permissions for remote server access).
Alternatively you can add the user that is being used to run the application, to the DCOM
User group on the server. This group should have all of the required permissions
