Luminis 4 - # of users/performance/loadbalancing

Submitted by carolhop on Mon, 10/29/2007 - 17:03

Hello, all.
We are on Luminis 4 - planning on upgrading to IV.0.1. We do have 16 Gb RAM (in anticipation of upgrading). We are running on Linux. (We are not yet in production)

We are curious about other schools running Luminis 4.x - how many users; website traffic; are you load balanced?
Did you go purely by the Luminis documentation, or did you have Sungard come and take a look at your setup?
Any information, or snippets of advice or "gotchas" you can provide would be great.

We are planning on loadbalancing soon, but we have not set it up yet.

Please help - Luminis 4.0.1 installation

Submitted by phillies40 on Sat, 10/27/2007 - 20:06


We tried to install luminis 4.0.1 on Windows 2003. We ran "LP- install.conf" in our development server. It ran 1 second and stopped. After reviewing install.log (please see attached file), I had no idea what did we miss.

Please someone help. Thanks in Advance.


Tab sharing - Luminis 4

Submitted by carolhop on Fri, 10/26/2007 - 10:53

I have a question

We made a tab called "Campus Life" using the student-lo account ... at first we thought it was going to be just for students, but now we want to make it available to Employees, too.

We know about the fragments I could make a fragment for both Employees and Students, but how do I "move" the tab from a student-lo to a newly defined fragment?

Does that question make sense?

Single Sign On into SITS e-Vision

Submitted by stevecarr on Thu, 10/25/2007 - 06:53

We decided to create our first SSO into our student e-Vision system. This entry may remind me how we did it when I do another one a little down the road. Doing our SSO involved getting to grips with pickup.response since I don't think there's much chance we would have a pickup.html put on the e-Vision server. It wasn't a particularly difficult SSO but we did take a day or so getting the various bits of configuration right.

The most notable thing from creating the SSO was using the pickup.response.

Hi All

Did any school successfully migrate old luminis III.3.* ssl certificate to the new luminis server when installing luminis IV on newe server(s)? if so, how? Would love to share your experience and tips.

We are trying to upgrade our school luminis to luminis IV running on Windows 2003 servers. Thank you very much.


Tab that takes you directly to Administrative Page

Submitted by csilveri on Fri, 10/19/2007 - 11:07

I would like to go directly to
from a tab. This is entry into our Administrative Services Area. (I'm trying to cut down on clicks). I thought it would be just to cut and paste this into a framed url in the tab. I get to the page, however, it's doubled. And I can't get back.. I have to log out . I'm not sure why. Am I doing something wrong? or maybe just not thinking this through..
Any help is appreciated.

Hostname for New Luminis IV servers

Submitted by bwalker on Thu, 10/18/2007 - 12:16

With migration to Luminis IV pending, one of my issues is:
What hostname do I give the new server?

I know many of us have given our Luminis III servers the name of 'my' or 'usource' (hi Dave), or whatever the campus name for the portal is.

I don't want to deal with an old 'my' and new 'my' during installation. It's possible but way too confusing and would require special networking.

So what am I to call the Luminis IV server?

Firewall Appliance

Submitted by newportal on Tue, 10/16/2007 - 21:11

Any body using a firewall appliance aside from Symantec that is working and easy to manage. We are currently researching and eventually purchase a firewall appliance with enterprise solution to be use for our blade center.

if you do have, it would be a big help if you can provide us the OS version you are using the what kind of anti-virus you are using.

Any info or suggestion will be appreciated.
