Banner Channels & "Target Audience"

Submitted by carolhop on Thu, 08/02/2007 - 16:52

Hello, all.

I'm hoping that someone else has run across the following or has a solution/suggestion:

In our Luminis installation, we recently changed our middle tier so that Luminis uses a different Banner instance. (we have many test/training, etc instances). Of course this involved configuration changes to Banner as well as Luminis.
Everything is working, except, all of our Banner Channels have a target audience of "admin" only and not Student, or Faculty, or Employee.

Any ideas why this happened?

PS This website has been very valuable to me!

Editing JSP message keys?

Submitted by baumli on Wed, 08/01/2007 - 11:15

I'm trying to change the copyright information on the login page.
The login page info is coming from /opt/luminis/webapps/luminis/jsp/lib/footer.jsp
Once logged into the portal, the info is coming from /opt/luminis/webapps/luminis/WEB-INF/uPortal/org/jasig/portal/layout/tab-column/nested-tables/nested-tables.xsl

In the footer.jsp there is the following:
fmt:setBundle basename="com.pipeline.lib.footer" />
span id="copyright" fmt:message key="copyright.message" / /span

Default Certificate Authority / SSL

Submitted by newportal on Mon, 07/30/2007 - 22:15

Good day to all Guru's and Geniuses of LUMDEV!

Does anybody have an idea how to enable or disable the default certificate authority of Luminis 3.x?

TouchNet will house our payments so the scenario right now on our server is this: We need to either disable SunGard's Default CA/SSL or enable it so we can avoid the pop-up question asking if we're gonna accept or reject the certificate.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks again.


Luminis IV Parallel Deployment - rendering jsp within the /site folder and tie into luminis jars

Submitted by kp on Mon, 07/30/2007 - 14:20

We are in the midst of going live with Luminis IV in parallel deployment and we came across an interesting problem. Our end goal is to have a shared folder that the web tier can access and render jsp files. These jsp files would need to have access to other luminis jar files (for stuff like iperson). The first problem we have is that we are sharing a folder for "/site" that the web and mid tiers have access to. If we put a jsp page in that shared location and hit it from a web browser, we see the jsp source code and a content type of text/plain.

Problems updating .properties files

Submitted by baumli on Mon, 07/30/2007 - 12:56

I am trying to update the copyright information in the footer, and I'm trying to stick with the provided variables instead of hardcoding in the text.

I have updated with the correct text, but when I restart the system, the old text is still showing up.

I ran across this same problem when I updated the and the changes didn't reflect in the portal. Someone else stated that they had this same problem and had to edit the html.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why the changes aren't being reflected?

Captcha - Spam protection

Submitted by admin on Thu, 07/26/2007 - 07:34

LDN has been nailed with spam-bots recently, creating accounts and posting crap comments to the site.
I've installed the 'Captcha' module a type of text-image verification, requiring new users to type in the characters in the image - I'm sure you've seen similar functions on other sites. Personally, I think they're a pain in the neck to use, often not accepting what I think is the correct answer, however, they get the job done, they stop the spam scripts from creating bogus accounts on the site. So I've conformed and added that function to the registration form.

Luminis - Banner Integration Help

Submitted by jkleiner on Wed, 07/25/2007 - 23:02

Is there anyone here running Luminis III.3.3 on Windows 2000 that has upgraded their LMG to version 3.2?

We are going to upgrade our Banner Intcomp to 7.3 and our LMG must be upgraded to 3.2 to process LDI events through Luminis. We attempted this process on our Luminis test system. The LMG is up and running, but any LDI events processed from Banner have failed. The LMG adapter.log keeps showing DISPATCHED FAILED.

Luminis IV migration problems

Submitted by admin on Fri, 07/20/2007 - 17:03

Well, having been working on migration from III.3.3 to IV in Solaris for a whole week, I realize it is not easy. Migration seems good, but with many problems:
when user logs in, email channel is disabled;
calendar and email icons disappeared;
when creating a new user, it's mailbox could not be created.

The version is 3591(Somehow 3595's calendar does not work). I ran into errors, and here are my solutions.

1. ORA-01000: maximum open cursors exceeded

SQL> alter system set open_cursors=65535 scope=both;

Custom Icons for IV

Submitted by baumli on Fri, 07/20/2007 - 15:38

I finally succeeded in adding in several icons to our Luminis IV portal. These are not role based, so if you are adding those the documentation may differ in some places.

I have updated the document with the procedures that I used to add in the new icons. I added another icon using the same documentation and it worked fine. I have 2 workarounds in the documentation that could change as defects get fixed. You also have to make sure that any changes made in a skin directory(ours is called nw_style, default might be xp_style) are made in all other skin directories.
