Major Upgrade During Winter Maintenance
In addition, please be advised that University IT Services is scheduling a major upgrade to the Banner servers over the winter maintenance window. The bulk of this work is being scheduled for the week between Christmas and New Year. While the schedule is still tentative, for planning purposes you should know that Banner and all Banner services (Self Service Banner, Banner INB, and Banner Reports) will likely be unavailable from Monday, December 28, 2015 through Sunday, January 3, 2016. Please plan your work accordingly. Further information on this will be provided as we get closer to the winter maintenance window.
