The UBC Vancouver DNS and DHCP services will be migrated from NetID to myDNS during this maintenance window. Impacts are as follows.
There is expected to be no interruption to DNS service during this maintenance window.
DHCP services will migrate transparently for most systems, however, there is a small possibility of a system not being able to obtain a new lease during this time. Users should restart their system following the scheduled maintenance window if there is an issue.
The web interface used by department administrators to manage DNS and DHCP services will change during this time. The NetID interface will be unavailable as of 09:00 July 29, 2010. The new myDNS interface will be available at the end of the scheduled maintenance window, 12:00 July 31. Please refer to online documentation at http://www.it.ubc.ca/network/mydns
Any emergency DNS changes required during this interval may be sent to UBC IT at firstname.lastname@example.org for processing.
