Updating the SSM Host

The latest SSM Host (scheduled for release shortly) will allow ESS to distribute low risk patches required for the extraction of additional data to support Next Gen rollout. These low-risk patches do not impact on normal SIMS 7 operations. The installation of other packages and patches is not affected by this change.

To enable the auto-updating of NG patches each school will need to specify a set of database credential in SSM Host.
