1. 9iAS and Banner

SCT has now certified most of the Banner products to run with Oracle's newweb application server, 9iAS. This product is commonly referred to as IAS,whichstands for Internet Application Server and replaces Oracle's older web serverproduct, OAS. Some campuses have already begun moving to or planning to move to9iAS with their banner implementations. ITEC has some recommendations forinstalling 9iAS. We also have SCT supplied generic documentation and also asite-specific record of installation and configuration steps used for onecampus. These documents may provide nice examples for some of you. All of thisinformation is logged in Remedy ticket 1705 in both the worklog and theattachment sections. If you need help searching for Remedy ticket 1705, pleaseemail<>.
