EMERGENCY SCHED MAINTENANCE potentially campus-wide impact thu 2 feb 2012 1500 – 1600
Equipment: inr-002 campus border router Location: potentially campus-wide impact Date: thu 2 feb 2012 Start: 1500 End: 1600
Description: an FPC (interface module) in inr-002, one of UCB’s two border routers connecting to the CalREN networks, has failed and must be replaced. i’m scheduling an emergency maintenance window 1500-1600 tomorrow, thu 2 feb 2012, for swapping out the failed FPC with a replacement unit. (this assumes the replacement FPC will arrive early enough tomorrow for the scheduled maintenance window.)
FPCs are hot-swappable (and the one currently in the router is already offline), so i don’t anticipate any disruption to campus’s external connectivity. however, to be doubly sure, i will have previously moved all external traffic off this router and onto inr-001, the redundant border router.
