Luminis 5 Consultant Needed

Submitted by risg on Mon, 10/29/2018 - 10:54

Suffolk County Community College on Long Island in New York is looking for a consultant to migrate its current v5.2 portal from one hosted location to another. We cannot do a direct copy as the system architecture of the new location will require a reinstall of Luminis. The college has a significant amount of content in our current location and we are not sure how best to migrate from one location to another. We have asked Ellucian for help but have not received any significant response.

Alternatives to Luminis 5

Hello All,

It is possible my institution will be moving away from Luminis 5. The amount of resources put into Luminis from Ellucian is quite low. After discussion with Ellucian, and after reading the Luminis roadmap, it has become clear things will stay this way for the foreseeable future.

So, we are considering looking at other solutions. Is anyone else in the same, or similar, situation? If so, what are your plans?

Thank you,
Kerry

Luminis schema with external LDAP

Submitted by anglarma on Tue, 07/10/2018 - 11:04

Forums:

I'm having an issue adding the Luminis schema to an external LDAP. I'm using openLDAP. The schema file that comes with Luminis uses an oid containing letters, lpSghePerson-oid. However it seems openLDAP requires the numericoid. Luminis uses openDS/DJ which allows for non-numeric characters, although it breaks the LDAP standard and openLDAP is more strict. Has anyone else come across this issue? Is there a registered oid? I'm pretty sure I can just make on up but I've seen warnings against it.

Uploaded Documents Don't Show on Portal Nodes Until Restart

Submitted by kkeiper1103 on Tue, 06/12/2018 - 11:30

We recently installed Luminis 5.3 and have a problem where uploaded documents don't show on the portal nodes until they're restarted.

Our setup is a multi-server setup, where there's a server for each tier, along with 4 servers for the portal nodes.

Has anyone experienced trouble like this before? Obviously, we can't be restarting Luminis every time a document is uploaded.

A navigation bar is hidden below 1300 horizontal

Hello,
I am trying to make a navigation bar to show in Luminis 5. The portlet "My courses" has a navigation bar that only is showing is the horizontal resolution of the browser is greater than 1300. I have tried changing custom.css (inside tomcat-portal/webapps/LP5-ellucian-theme/css/) but it seems that the changes on those css files are not taking any effect. I even restarted the whole platform but nothing happen.
The rule that I want to change shows as: .aui .nav-collapse, .aui custom.css:1722 @(max-width:1300px)

Can anyone help me with this error? Issue RESOLVED

Hi all,
After much searching and collaboration with the team, we have Luminis 53 up and running in our test environment.

I am executing the lp5_mqinit.sh script and am encountering the following error:
Cannot read the bind response from the server. The port you are using may require a secured communication (--useSSL). The connection to the Directory Server was closed before the bind response could be read (id=10748693)
This is on Step 2 of lp5_mqinit.sh. Any suggestions on how to get around this?
Thanks,
N.

Deep Link SSO to Brightspace (D2L) with CAS?

Submitted by zzbroud on Wed, 01/10/2018 - 19:00

Forums:

Hello! We went live with Lp5.3.100 last week. We are using EIS for CAS and set up D2L with CAS authentication. We can successfully SSO to the home page in D2L. Has anyone done a course to course SSO into D2L with CAS? We had this type on LP4 with GCF, but we did a fresh install and are no longer wanting to use GCF.

Anyone?

Am I missing the instructions on how/when to install openDS? Issue RESOLVED

Submitted by dkcngb on Wed, 01/10/2018 - 17:08

Hi all,
We have gotten past this issue and have Luminis 5.3 installed and running in our test environment.

I am a total rookie when it comes to sys admin stuff. I am trying to upgrade to Luminis 5.3/LMG 4.1.1 and I am at the point where you execute the lp5_mqinit.sh script. However it fails with the error "Unable to connect to the server xxxxxxx.xxxxx.edu on port 4444." I do not see any instructions / commands etc for the openDS stuff. Am I missing something or am I making this more difficult that was it should be?
Thanks everyone,
N.
