Production Banner upgrade scheduled for August 4 weekend

Banner and BannerWeb will be unavailable beginning at 5:00 pm on Friday, August 4, until 6:00 am on Monday, August 7. During this time, IT Services will upgrade several Banner modules to the most recent version. This upgrade is necessary to comply with regulatory requirements, implement bug fixes, take advantage of new enhancements, and sustain interdependencies between Banner modules. We are also provisioning our Banner 8 modules where they need to be for the Banner 9 implementation, and upgrading the Banner 9x database.a building with gears above and behind it including a purple one with a B in the middle

The modules being upgraded/patched are:

  • Banner Financial Aid
  • Banner General
  • Banner HR
  • Banner ESS
  • Banner Finance
  • Banner Student
  • Banner Accounts Receivable
  • Position Control
  • Banner/Ethos APIs

This outage will not impact the availability of the Canvas learning management system or myMiami; however, Banner data normally displayed in myMiami will not be available, and faculty will not be able to submit grades through Canvas during the outage. Also, because of this upgrade, EM jobs (Control M-Scheduler) will not run August 4-6, but will resume on August 7.

If you have questions or concerns regarding the Banner upgrade, please contact the IT Services Support Desk at 513 529-7900 or
