Are you interested in learning more about Banner? Have questions about best practices? Want to connect with colleagues at other Banner schools to learn how they have addressed challenging problems? Consider joining the Ellucian Commons.
Some of you may remember the older Sun Guard Higher Education ListServ that used to allow Banner schools and users to communicate, collaborate, and stay connected. Although some of those older ListServ threads still exist they have largely been replaced and augmented by the new Ellucian Commons system.
From the Ellucian Commons website – “…The Commons is an online community where Ellucian customers, partners, and employees can share experiences, ask questions, find answers, and connect to a collaborative and informed network. Articles, news, blogs, best practices, reference materials, document libraries, discussion threads, and more provide the community with tools to share, learn, explore, and create.”
We’re seeing an abnormally high level of traffic between our storage systems across data centers. The result of this is the user community will occasionally see slow data transfers. E.g. Opening or saving files to the network, retrieving email, mounting shared drives, etc… We expect to reach normal levels within the next 24 hours.
In order to increase the resilience and reliability of our cloud platform we will be conducting database maintenance on September, 19th between 12:01 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. EST. During most of this period your site will be operational, but there may be short periods of connection loss to the internet.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve your experience.
