Reason 0 – Capita Sims – After Migration

5 Oct

Whilst there a few reasons why reason 0 occurs

“Reason 0” was because under SQL configuration both TCP/IP and Named pipes were disabled for the SQL instance.

On a new install of SQL these are both set as disabled until enabled. It is found in SQL configuration Manager > SQL Server Network Configuration > Protocols for SIMS2012.

If you change the defaults on in English.lproj, the settings will be migrated into new user accounts. At least it worked for me.

sudo defaults write /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/ AlwaysRestoreSessionAtLaunch -bool false

sudo defaults write /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/ NewWindowBehavior -integer 0

sudo defaults write /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/ HomePage -string “”

I was copying the from my admin account to the “/System/Library/User Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences”, and that didn’t work because the keys above were gone… already migrated to whatever secret location Apple has moved them to. Adding them manually into the plist appears to work.
