Links to Banner 8 Admin Databases

Banner users will primarily use the PROD database of Banner Admin.  So what does PROD mean anyway?  PROD stands for production - as in the production of live data.  The other Banner databases are primarily used for testing and training.

  • PROD - Production area
  • MAC users - PROD - Production area

During training, you will use the TEST database. 

  • TEST - For training purposes as well as a long-term testing area

Only a handful of Banner users will use the following Banner databases (and you know who you are.)  These databases are refreshed weekly on Sunday nights.

  • USER - Administrative testing and troubleshooting
  • PPRD - Final testing area for the development of new programs
  • DEVL - Development of new programs.  (Designated for IT development)
  • UPGR - Upgrade Testing

You can also use the IT Links page to reach these databases.
