Sunday April 5th Server Maintenance For Most Banner Production Systems
On Sunday morning, April 5th, Information Systems plans to perform server maintenance for most Banner production systems. For more information, see impact and details below.
The maintenance will start at 8:30am and should be completed by 10:30am.
Please confirm your services are functioning properly after this time.
Let me know if you have any concerns/questions/issues.
– All Banner production servers will be restarted after updating a web service configuration. Consequently, Banner services will be effected momentarily on each server.
– We are also upgrading the Ellucian Ethos IDentity (EEID) servers during this time. We don’t expect any interruption of Banner production services due to this upgrade.
– We have experienced challenges in all Banner environments when the “spinner” in admin pages, for example, disappeared before an action was completed, such as when saving a change (insert, update, delete). A configuration modification in NGINX has shown to resolve this in non-prod environments and we are now making this change in production.
– EEID production servers will be upgrade to the version 5.7.2, which has been running on our EEID test server for several weeks. This version is required as we move towards midPoint.
