Posted by Jay Sudowski on 17 April 2017 04:00 PM
Update: 12:37AM - This maintenance is complete.  We are reviewing monitoring to ensure everything came back online properly.

Date:
April 21, 2017
Time: 
10:00PM - 12:00AM

Purpose of Work:
During this maintenance window, we will be upgrading our primary distribution switches at 1801 California St to the JTAC recommended JunOS.

Impact of Work:
Our distribution switches are running in a highly available virtual chassis cluster, which should reduce any network interruptions to just a couple of periods of latency while routes reconverge.  This network disruption will impact clients at both of our Denver area data centers.

Posted by Jay Sudowski on 17 April 2017 03:56 PM
Update: April 21 2:40AM - The maintenance is complete.  We still have a handful of switches that need JunOS upgrades.  We will upgrade those during tomorrow evening's maintenance window.

Update: April 21 2:04AM - We still have a number of switches in the process of rebooting.  We will be extending this maintenance window until they are complete.

Update: April 20 9:54PM - sw2-b2 is facing issues with file system corruption.  ETA for restoration is 30 minutes.

Update: April 20 9:00PM - We are starting this maintenance window.

Date:
April 20, 2017
Time: 
9:00PM - 2:00AM

Purpose of Work:
During this maintenance window, we will be upgrading our top of rack switches to the latest Juniper recommended JunOS.  This work will only take place at switches located at 1801 California St (our downtown Denver data center).

Impact of Work:
Each switch will be offline for 10-15 minutes to reboot and install the latest JunOS.  During this time, hosts directly connected to the top of rack switches will also be offline.  You can determine which switch your server or servers are connected to via https://manage.handynetworks.com.  We will start with switches in A row, then go to B row, C, row and so on.
