On May 9th, we announced system updates taking place over Memorial Day Weekend. These updates are focused on infrastructure, so our university community will not see any changes to our systems, but rest assured that these updates are creating a more modern, secure environment for our resources.
The following systems and applications will be unavailable beginning at 5pm on Friday, May 26th:
- My Missouri State / My Grizzly Den (West Plains)
- Admin Banner
- Self-Service Banner 8 (e.g. Student Information Menu, Student Records)
- Banner Self Service 9 (e.g. Employee Dashboard, Registration)
- Custom web applications (such as the Registration Status, Advising Notes, Chosen Name, and Direct Deposit pages)
- All other systems reliant upon our database
There will be no impact to other systems such as: University networks, phone systems, main websites, Blackboard, Microsoft 365, email services, video surveillance systems, electronic door access, and the application for admission.
System Update Schedule:
- Outage begins Friday, May 26, 2023 at 5:00pm.
- System testing and verification will occur throughout the day on Saturday, May 27th and Sunday, May 28th. Systems might be up and down during this time, but system functionality should not be expected until Monday.
- On Monday May 29, 2023 additional verification and testing will continue, and access to Banner and related systems may be intermittent throughout the day.
- Full system restoration is expected by the beginning of the work day on Tuesday, May 30, 2023.
