[aprssig] [Fwd: Network Maintenance -- Router software upgrade]

Just got this notice from our Campus Network folks.

IMPACTS: first.aprs.net, cwop1.aprs.net, cwop4.aprs.net, ceop5.aprs.net, 
firenet.us, and, www2.findu.com will all potentially be unavailable 
during this outage.

I will make attempts to move services temporarily to other physical 
locations, but most of my contacts have already left for Christmas Break 
at the various universities I'd usually call.

My experience with the folks doing this work is that we're looking at no 
more than the expected 10 minute outage.

Subject: Network Maintenance -- Router software upgrade
Date: Tue, 22 Dec 2009 14:47:55 -0600

Maintenance start date:  Saturday,  January, 2, 2010
Maintenance start time: 6:00am
Estimated end time: 10:00am

Details of maintenance: Backbone router software will be upgraded
requiring a  reboot of multiple campus routers.

Impact to customers:  The campus network and Internet access will be
unavailable for at least 10 minutes during the maintenance window as the
routers reboot.  It is likely that most areas of campus will experience
this more than once as routers at the campus edge are rebooted and then
those closer to their physical location.

If you experience a network outage of past the above estimated end
time, please contact Help Desk Central at 845-8300. Any comments or
questions concerning the schedule of this change should be directed to
the CIS Help Desk Central.
