Maintenance on primary routers at the VANTX December 26, 2010 07:00 โ€“ 08:00

From: 07:00 Sunday, December 26, 2010
To: 08:00 Sunday, December 26, 2010

Reason: One of the primary routers at the Vancouver Transit Exchange (VANTX) requires emergency maintenance to correct an internal reporting problem. The software will be upgraded to a newer version.

Effects: There will be two 5 minute outages during the window as the routing engines are being upgraded and switched onto the backup.

Access to the Internet and local peering will be intermittent during the 5 minute outage. Connectivity to the research network will be unaffected during this maintenance window.

Customers affected in Vancouver are:

Great Northern Way Campus
BCNET Servers
WTS
Genome Sciences Centre
BCIT Internet Engineering Lab
PHSA
Cybera
Telesat
SFU
UBC ResNet
UBC Distributed Medical School
WestGrid
