BANNER and Student Connect Closedown
Banner and Student Connect will not be available to staff and students from 6pm on Friday 15 August, due to an upgrade of the application server. The system will again be available to users on the morning of Monday 18 August. Please read the Banner 8.6 Upgrade item below for further details.
BANNER 8.6 Upgrade
During semester 2 of 2014 BANNER will be undergoing 2 major upgrades. The first is an upgrade to the software managing the server ‘WebLogic Server Basic Edition’ during Phase 1. This will carry over the same functionality as currently exists on BANNER without any changes but will update some of the background software.
Phase 2 will update BANNER from the current 8.3 version to 8.6. This will introduce some new tables and structure which will allow us to move on next year to the new version of ‘BANNER XE’ which brings with it many new exciting enhancements and improvements.
We plan to have Phase 2 completed by the end of November this year. We will pass on more detailed information on when access to BANNER will be affected by the Phase 2 cutover period when it becomes available to us.
