Banner Migrations and Scheduled Outages

June 13, 2019

BAN2 – June 6 - June 7

We’re excited to report that the migration of our Banner test instance (BAN2) to Linux is complete and the system is available for use. As part of the improved Banner security architecture, when using Brio on BAN2 from either on or off campus, you must now connect to Yale’s virtual private network (VPN). Please continue to report any issues with BAN2, to banneraixtolinux@yale.edu.

Functional and User Acceptance Testing begins Monday, June 10. Testing is expected to complete Friday, June 28.

BAN1 – Weekend of July 13

The planned migration for our Banner production instance (BAN1) will begin on Friday, July 12, at 6:00 p.m. and is expected to complete on Sunday, July 14. The weekend of July 20 is the fallback migration weekend.

Thanks to the cross functional team in ITS, Registrar, Financial Aid, and Bursar for their focused activity on this project.
