BannerWeb issues, Computing Services working to fully restore services

Beginning yesterday evening, we began experiencing issues with our BannerWeb environment. We’ve been working with our vendor to restore these services, and hope to have everything working later this afternoon if not sooner. This will affect Banner Web Services such as School Services and Faculty/Employee services intermittently as we are working to resolve the issue. This should not impact on-campus Banner Forms access and functionality. This was not a planned maintenance activity, and we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

If you have any questions, please call our Helpdesk at x7741 or contact us via email at computingservices@adams.edu

Thank you,
Computing Services
