Banner (BAN3) migration & scheduled outage - February 26 - 27

February 21, 2019

Yale is migrating Banner, our student information system, from AIX to Linux operating systems. This work is being done to eliminate our Advanced Interactive eXecutive (AIX) operating system footprint. Much of the prework is already done. Our next major step is migrating the development instance of Banner, BAN3, from AIX to Linux. Beginning at 9:00 a.m., Tuesday, February 26, through 4:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 27, BAN3 will be unavailable as work is performed. 

The BAN3 migration will be our first run-through of the deployment plan and prepare us to repeat the process on the BAN2 (test) and ultimately, BAN1 (production) instances. The scheduled migration dates for BAN2 are Wednesday, May 1, through Thursday, May 2. IT is working with functional owners to determine the least disruptive summer weekend to schedule the BAN1 migration. All Banner instances are expected to be migrated before August 2019.
