Action Needed: Important Notice to Banner INB Users

On Friday, July 29, 2016, Illinois Tech’s environment was upgraded so users are now able to utilize Java 8 to access Banner INB.

Please know that with this change, you will need to take action whether you decide to use Java 8 or 7.

Option #1 – Java 8

The Office of Technology Services (OTS) recommends that all Banner INB users upgrade their version of Java to Java 8 (upgrade here) to protect against vulnerabilities that were patched from previous versions. Please note that upgrading to Java 8 may impact your ability to open other programs that do not support Java 8.

Option #2 – Java 7

If you would like to remain on your current Java 7 version, you will need to modify the Java settings in order to access Banner INB. The OTS website’s update instructions (click here) will assist you in making the necessary changes.

Java 6

If you are running Java 6, you do not need to take any action.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact the OTS Support Desk by calling 312.567.335 (on campus x7DESK) or by emailing
