All Banner systems scheduled to be down for conversion starting 4/13 at noon

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

This is a campus-wide reminder that all Banner services including School Services, Banner Forms, Banner Printing, and any other systems that rely on Banner will be taken down at noon on this Friday, April 13th for the conversion process. If there are any processes or reports that you need to run within any Banner system, please ensure that they are completed before noon. All users should log off by noon in order to prevent possible data loss when the systems are taken offline. All Banner services are anticipated to be restored in time for the opening of business on Monday, April 16th.

This is the culminating event of a long and complicated conversion process, and Computing Services appreciates all of the user testing that our user community has performed within the last few weeks as well as the support and understanding throughout the entire process. Please don’t hesitate to call the ASC Computing Services Helpdesk at x7741 or via email if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Computing Services

Computing Services Maintenance for Thursday, April 5th 2012

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Computing Services will be performing the following maintenance beginning tonight at 9:00 PM:

  • The old Microsoft Printing server will be shutdown and decommissioned at 9 PM. Please see the important message below regarding this change:

For all Employees, if you have not done so already, you will need to delete any printers that are mapped to SRVPRN1 and re-map them to SRVPRN2. If you do not complete this new mapping you will be unable to print on Friday morning.

If your printers show as PRINTERNAME on SRVPRN2 you are already mapped to the new print server and do not need to take any action. Make sure you only delete printers that show as PRINTERNAME on SRVPRN1.

Here are some how-to articles on deleting and re-adding printers:

Also, as part of this transition, all networked printers will be set to print duplex (double-sided) if the printer supports this feature. If you have any questions or need any assistance, please call the Computing Services Help Desk at x7741 or contact us via email at asccompserv@adams.edu

Thank you!
