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.
Some system hack

I attended the PABUG (PA Banner User's Group) conference last week and saw some neat things local colleges are doing with Luminis.
Hello LumDev Community:
We want to share our fix to patch the POODLE vulnerability in LUMINIS 5.0.x deployments. This fix applies to tomcat version 5.x (we currently have Apache Tomcat/5.5.27 and Luminis version 5.0.4)
We made an update in our CAS, PORTAL, ADMIN server.xml
and replaced this setting with:
The password age in luminis platform 4 (LP4) is set using a global setting:
Has any school finished DMZ project?
We need to move our web servers to DMZ for PCI compliance. Could any school give us ideas for the recommended DMZ settings?
We are working on upgrading luminis 4 to 5 but my department director wants to know why since our current system running on 220.127.116.11 (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!
Does anyone know where can I find the following links (Banner SSB) in luminis 18.104.22.168 system?
"https://nucleus.pcom.edu/cp/school/sctmain"? This page shows all our school Banner SSB links like the following:
Today, I am starting this block to record and share my journey of building and customising a new LP5.1 platform with all of you.
To build a new dev LP5.1 with highly customised web interface, automated user provisioning process with external AD/LDAP/IM application, and highly independent service oriented portal framework to support portlet channels (based on current own framework and uPortal / JSP modle 2 channels).
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.
I'm somewhat surprised that I'm the first person ever writing anything about this on the Internet it looks like (Googling for libumem and Luminis turns up a whopping zero hits), but I think I've found something that substantially improves the performance of Luminis under load (on my 2 CPU test system anyway -- I will have to try this on our 8 CPU production system and see if the results translate) and would like some feedback.
