I never like having to discuss the bad things that can happen with the maintenance of our products, and I never look at these as "just the way things are".  We're constantly striving to improve our processes and find issues before they become issues, but sometimes problems are going to occur and the best thing that we can do is get the information you need, out to you, as quickly as we can.  If you're reading this blog, then you'll be the beneficiary of one of the ways that we can do this.

 

For our Financial Aid programs (and only Financial Aid) some of the COBOL programs And DMS scripts were not copied to the Staging Directory during the application of Campus Solutions 9.0 Bundle #41, Patchset 21385003.  This, of course, is going to cause a wide array of problems with Financial Aid COBOL jobs if you don't catch it during the maintenance testing.  So if you're applying this bundle, please be sure to read:  COBOL And DMS Not Copied To Staging Directory During Application of Campus Solutions 9.0 Bundle #41, Patchset 21385003, Document 2134222.1 where we describe the problem more completely and provide you with a workaround. This will be incorporated into our master bundl note, as well.
