How to move Icons left?

Submitted by phillies40 on Wed, 09/24/2014 - 14:33

Hi all

Some students of our school complaining about scrolling right in order to logout of luminis system, clicking on Email or Blackboard icons. School instructs me to see if we can move all icons left (Email, BB, Groups, Logout).

I'd been searching Ellucian website but could not find any instructions for this, could anyone help or share experience? (I done it in 3.3 by changing uPortal) thanks!


How to export Banner Users and import into Luminis?

Submitted by phillies40 on Mon, 06/02/2014 - 15:02

Hi all

We'd using our own SQL Processes to generate user account XML files for luminis 4 system. We are now testing luminis V and thinking to use Banner baseline Processes to do the luminis account creations.

But after couple weeks of user guide reading, we are very frustrated. :(

Could any school please provide us some tips?

1. How to generate records into GORIROL for Banner Users?
2. We successfully ran and generated records in GORRSQL and GTVSQRU. then what?

Why is luminis 5 better than 4?

Hi all

We are working on upgrading luminis 4 to 5 but my department director wants to know why since our current system running on (windows 2003 OS) is really great and steady.

Are you upgrading to 5 simply for the sake of upgrading or for better reason? Could any school give us reason(s) to upgrade? thanks so much!

Cloning of a virtualized luminis server? YES! Now we just successfully cloned lumnis system!

Hi all

Has any school virtualized (VMS) its luminis system? how about cloning?

We did both successfully but we did notice some weird things happened between the cloned and original luminis systems.


1. When running "cptool list users" in both systems, they show exactly the same when no one is using the cloned one, but later try, the cloned one shows 0.
2. When we make a targeted announcement on the original luminis system, it shows on the cloned on as well!

We ask our network team and DBA, they could not find anything wrong either.

Why is linked files inside of luminis not secured?

Submitted by phillies40 on Tue, 02/19/2013 - 08:44

Hi all

Some of our school students complain about their privacy violated when their personal data which were stored inside school luminis system (Window 2008 OS, Luminis were searchable in google. (ex: if you type "student composites" in google, hundreds of links shown for numerous schools!)

Has any school done something to prevent this from happening? How could any data stored inside a SSL secured system such as luminis could be accessible outside without any password asked?

Please help, thanks!
