ITS System Outage this weekend: Starting 5:30 pm on Jan. 18

Due to the need for major maintenance, all Banner-related systems will be taken offline Friday afternoon (Fri 2013-JAN-18) at 5:30. 

A result of the planning and testing efforts expended by the staff of many of The Citadel’s administrative offices, this unavoidable maintenance to Banner is required to ensure our systems and data remain secure and have the continued functionality the college’s operations require. As most of you are aware, our Banner system is the central component of most of The Citadel’s major IT systems.

The systems that will not be available this weekend include Lesesne Gateway, Banner and BannerWeb, Cadet Information Systems, Commandant Information System, Infirmary System, and Cognos.

Citlearn and our email systems do not require use of Lesesne Gateway and should continue to remain available as usual. Faculty and staff can always access their email at http://owa.citadel.edu and CitLearn can be reached at http://citlearn.blackboard.com. Student e-mail can be accessed at http://webmail.citadel.edu/.

Also, please note this correction from my earlier message: OneCard will be available this weekend.

While we hope to have all systems back online late Sunday (Sun 2013-JAN-20), it is possible that they may not all be available until Tuesday morning (Tue 2013-JAN-22). You can check http://www.bulldogalert.info for periodic status updates.
