Service(s) affected: All network connectivity to buildings connected to old core (DRT0 and DRT1) and all subnets routed by those routers, which represents about 75% of the campus network.
Replacing two old routers with a new one (DRT0 and DRT1 move to DRT2). There will be a long outage starting 8pm on 7/2 for about an hour to insert DRT2 and re-cable DRT0 DRT1 as “slaves”. Then there will be a rolling outage, ~5 min. outage per building, and also ~5 min. outage per subnet.
Outage Window: Start: 07/02/2015 8:00 PM End: 07/06/2015 7:00 AM
Reason for outage: DRT0 and DRT1 are obsolete. The vendor will no longer provide support. We have had several failures on this equipment already. The OS code is old and has known vulnerabilities.
Departments affected: All buildings connected to DRT0 or DRT1 (approx 120) and all subnets routed on those routers (approx 80).
Locations affected: See above. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more specific information.
Applications affected: In affected buildings and/or affected subnets there will be complete loss of network connectivity.
