Planned maintenance: Databases to be migrated in November and December

Throughout November and December, several databases will be upgraded to Oracle 19c to maintain currency and vendor support. This will involve planned outages for the affected applications. Please see the maintenance schedule:

  • IAPROD: November 13, 6 pm to 8 pm
  • MWREP: November 13, 8 pm to 10 pm
  • MARS: November 21, 9 am to 12 pm
  • PROD and PWAS: December 13 at 11:00 pm to December 14 at 1 am

For each of the two- to three-hour maintenance windows, the applications that use these databases will be unavailable. Applications that are left running while this maintenance takes place may need to be restarted once the upgrade is complete.

We recommend that you validate your applications thoroughly after the upgrade and notify immediately of any issues.

Notable applications that utilize these databases include:


  • OAS (Oracle Analytic Server)
  • BI Publisher


  • Student, faculty, and staff-facing Miami applications, for example:
    • FindUser
    • Web Aliases
    • Course List
    • Web Directory
    • Photo Roster
  • Confluence
  • myMiami portlets


  • Banner Admin
  • BannerWeb
  • uAchieve


  • MUnet password utilities

If you have questions or concerns regarding this planned maintenance, please contact Troy Travis.
