Computing Services Maintenance for Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Beginning at 9:00 PM, Employee and TEC Classrooms will receive security updates to Adobe Flash. Employees are encouraged to log off but leave their computers on when leaving work for the day. This will assist the installation of these patches and minimize any impact.

Also starting at 9:00 PM, Computing Services will be doing several critical security updates on many of our Banner services. During this time, users will experience very brief outages to Banner services, which should last less than 10 minutes.

***Decommissioning of the Banner line printer***

Computing Services will soon be taking steps to decommission the line printer in the Computing Services building. One of those steps is to replace the printer’s name (lpcs1) on the Banner form GJAPCTL for any jobs which currently have that name as the default.

If you use GJAPCTL, which is also known as Banner Job Submission, you may have seen the printer name “lpcs1” in the “Printer” field on the form. We will be replacing “lpcs1” with “NOPRINT” in the next day or so to ensure that jobs are not accidentally printed on the line printer.

Jobs that are submitted with a printer of “NOPRINT” will not print to a printer; instead, you’ll receive job results via email. If a hardcopy is required, change “NOPRINT” to the printer of your choice, but realize that jobs sent to lpcs1 may no longer print.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical maintenance activities. As always, if you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at 7741 or contact us via email at
