The SIMS/FMS/Discover database plug-in is a specialised plug-in to protect Schools Information Management System (SIMS, provided by Capita in the UK - www.capita-sims.co.uk/) data. This article provides information on how to obtain the latest versions and install the plug-in.

Note: If you do not have access to the Partner area, please contact your Reseller to obtain the latest Backup Client and SIMS plug-in.
Once Auto-Updates are enabled for the particular Backup Groups and new "Client Auto Updates" have been extracted on the Storage Platform, the SIMS/FMS/Discover plug-in will automatically be updated during the next backup.
If FMS is installed but not SIMS, the plug-in will still display both the SIMS and FMS options. Navigate to the SIMS configuration page and deselect the Backup SIMS SQL Server check box. Failure to do so will cause backups to display an error that the SIMS plug-in has not yet been configured.
