June 7-8th: Scheduled Network Maintenance

Recommended Posts

We will be conducting scheduled maintenance on Saturday the 7th of June through the morning of Sunday the 8th beginning at 11:00PM to 03:00AM EST (-0500), although we do not expect any prolonged downtime it is likely there will be multiple periods of 10-20 minute outages.

 

This maintenance is to conduct a switch over to a new Cisco 6509 core switch/router device with the exact same configuration as our current 6509 except for more RAM being available in the new unit. This should be a seamless transition and the previous 6509 unit will be retired as a hot spare for any failures we may encounter in the future.

 

We will keep you updated as the situation progresses on the evening of the 7th or if there is any changes in schedule for this maintenance window. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this event please feel free to open a ticket on our help desk, thank you in advance for your patience.

The change over was very seamless, the preparation leading up to the migration to the new hardware has paid off in that we had less than 15 minutes of actual downtime and we encountered zero issues (knock on wood!). We will continuing to monitor things as a precaution through the rest of the scheduled maintenance window and should there be any issues of concern an update will be posted promptly.
