IT Announcement - 11/06/2015
Sunday Maintenance Reminder
Every Sunday from 12am until 12pm all Systems (e-mail, Banner, wireless, etc.) will be intermittently unavailable while important maintenance and updates are performed.
Weekly Maintenance – Reminder
Please log off your computer when leaving for the day every Thursday, but do not power it off. This will allow updates to be sent down to your computer on Friday after 12:00am. If you turn your computer off and leave it off overnight on Thursday, shortly after turning it back on, your computer will restart in order to install and apply any updates. If you leave your computer logged in Thursday night into Friday, you may lose any unsaved data you were working on when the computer restarts.
Early Registration / Banner Job Submissions
Early registration for Spring 2016 begins Friday, November 6th and is open through Friday, November 20th. To ensure that registration isn’t negatively impacted for students, Information Technology is reminding all Banner users to execute large, Banner Job Submission processes during off-peak periods, prior to 7:00am and after 2:30pm. Any large Banner Job Submission process running during peak periods and interfering with Banner performance will be stopped without notification. Your cooperation to privilege the registration process during the November 6-20 timeframe is necessary to safeguard that registration goes smoothly for students.
