One thought on “Banner 8 “Go Live” schedule

  1. Jeff Rehbach

    LEADS meeting notes, 12/21/09
    - moratorium on code changes week of 2/14/10
    - MIIS payroll handled as early as possible on Wednesday
    - end of Midd drop/add period
    (encourage students to get cards in by Wednesday noon)
    (course directory listings won’t be updated till week of 2/21)
    - public safety will need to be notified about access to Banner
    - we’ll try at system level to set PPRD to be read-only on Th-Fri-Sat
    (if something goes wrong with upgrade, we’ll restore from PPRD)
    - no BannerWeb access on Thu-Fri-Sat
    - if reports run on Th-Fri-Sat, edit reports that point to Production to run against Reporting db (or else they’ll fail to run)
    - won’t be able to run reports out of job submission during upgrade
    - if ready on Saturday, turn on cron jobs
