Scheduled Downtime for Banner and UMW Blogs


The Banner PRODUCTION system will be unavailable while important patches are applied during the standard Friday evening IT maintenance window.  Banner will be unavailable from 6:00 PM Friday August 9th through 6:00 AM Saturday August 10th.

Affected components include INB, SSB, and Reporting.  This means that actions like student payments through Banner must wait until the maintenance work is completed and the systems are returned to active status.

In addition, UMW Blogs will be unavailable on Monday, August 12th as DTLT staff moves the system to a new server.  More information about this work is available here:  http://umweagleeye.wpengine.com/2013/08/05/umw-blogs-unavailable-august-12/

System status updates are regularly posted to our Twitter account at http://twitter.com/umwIT and the IT Help Desk web site http://technology.umw.edu/helpdesk.

Thank you for your patience while we perform this work.   Please report any questions or concerns to the Help Desk at helpdesk@umw.edu, by phone at 540-654-2255, or in person at George Washington Hall, Room 027.
