This Friday, October 19th, 2007 at 10:00PM Pacific time our datacenter will be performing emergency maintenance on our core routers. They are going to be upgrading the operating system on one of our core routers in their main facility, and one primary distribution router at their LAX facility. The total downtime shouldn’t be much longer than it takes these to reboot into the newer operating system, and reestablish the links to the outside world. The maintenance window is two hours, though they hope everything from a network standpoint will be completed in 30 minutes.

These upgrades will address many of the issues they have been having over the past months. Cisco has recommended this version of IOS to potentially solve a network flooding issue they have seen intermittently, and if it does not, will allow them to escalate the case even further. The upgrade will also give them support for new hardware they have purchased for the routers themselves, increased diagnostic gathering capability, and bring online their redundant supervisor line card.

I apologize for the short notice and overall inconvenience of this upgrade, however this will hopefully fix various outstanding bugs that crop up during the day. They are attempting to do as much as possible with this reboot to minimize further downtime.

The whole Datacenter will be affected by this upgrade.

I can't see the pic for some reason but I'd bet it's a picture of MO chewing on an exposed end of Coax cable with a Becks bottle in his right hand, a giant f'ing monkey wrench in his left hand, and , since it's Sunday night, he's prolly wearing an eye patch with a picture of Jaco Pastorius on it. Am I close?
