FW: ICCN work on the UIS campus on 9/21

This is a continuation of work begun in August to replace ICCN switches and upgrade the UIS connections to the ICCN. Shellie, Greg and Brandon please note that one of the nodes in Urbana, routers (ur2rtr) is also being upgraded and will cause a VLL outage during this time frame. —–Original Message—– From: Brown, Aaron L [] Sent: Wednesday, September 18, 2013 10:33 PM To: Voyles, Jamie N; Zepp, Kevin Cc: pawinan@ILSTU.EDU; Kollross, Matt; Skaar, Chris Subject: ICCN work on the UIS campus on 9/21 Hi Jamie, I wanted to confirm that we’re okay to be on the UIS campus this Saturday to perform more ICCN upgrades. Phil and Matt will be on the UIS campus Saturday morning around 5:00am to bring the new sp2rtr online. In addition to needing in University Hall one of the guys will need in the Data Center at HSB and in the Telecom room at Brookens to move to the new fiber I tested a few weeks ago. Once the work is complete they will need to get back in the HSB DC to replace a module in the sp1rtr router. Once the new connections are up and stable we’ll return the fiber used for the original connections. Should they use the same procedures as last time to gain entrance to the spaces? At the same time the sp2rtr is being replaced the ur2rtr router on the Urbana campus will also be replaced. The impact of the ur2rtr being down is that VLL between UIS and PPSB will be down.

UISappsrvprod1 & 2 will now boot on a regular basis during mtce window.

I’m going to schedule a job that bounces the app servers (UISappsrvprod1 and UISappsrvprod2) – on Thursday mornings (to help address an issue that arose recently with a hung trust).

Since its expected that servers will be bounced during this window – i.e. the regularly scheduled mtce window, a SICM is not needed (just the notification).
