We are in the process of testing a major release of our Banner system (Banner8) and an Oracle upgrade to 10g with UTF-8 character set.
It seems like we have to jump through a lot of hoops to get our users access to the test environment.
So for example, our Oracle production instance is GOLD, our play instance is SAND and our Banner 8 test instance is DEV2.
First I need to setup the config files to be able to use UTF-8. That's not to difficult
Re-create the new MFDs in the DEV2 Application
Next I create a test Domain FinAid-B8
Copy the Standard Reports from FinAid Domain to FinAid-B8
Change those that are necessary for the expanded field lengths
Change the SQL connect string from
ENGINE SQLORA SET DEFAULT_CONNECTION GOLD to ENGINE SQLORA SET DEFAULT_CONNECTION DEV2
Insert an APP PATH DEV2 statement in every fex
Setup a Group(s)assign the test Domain and users for security purposes
Instruct the users how to access the Test Domains
Then we have to worry about the internal name changes for launch pages, both for Domains and Folders names less than 12 characters.
This seems putsie and a lot of work. Is there a better way.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Kerry,
