Online Services - org.springframework.jbdc Error


  • I cannot use Online Services links.  I get the error "org.sprinframework.jdbc.CannotGetJdbcConnectionException: Could not get JDBC Connection; nested exception is java.sql.SQLRecoverableException: Listener refused the connection with the following error: ORA-12514, TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor"

Online Services is unable to communicate with the Banner PROD database.  This can happen due to the following:

  • Weekly backups.  The Banner PROD database is unavailable every week from 11:59pm Friday night until backups complete--typically 2-4 hours.
  • Scheduled maintenance.  This error may be seen during scheduled database maintenance.
  • Database outage


Method 1 - Try again at a different time

  • If error was seen early Saturday morning before 4:00am, it is likely due to weekly database backups.  Retry after backup window.
  • If error is seen during scheduled administrative database or Banner maintenance, retry after maintenance window ends.

For assistance, contact the Service Desk.
