The works will involve disconnecting and removing all physical servers listed above.

The purposes of these works are to upgrade the physical hardware, ESXi versions and Debain operating systems. Each server will be taken offline and replaced / upgraded 1 at a time. The services are redundant and no service outages are anticipated. However in the case of the Easybond NOC, this will likely result in a small outage once the controller is re-loaded back to operational state.

Further updates will be given on the day.

UPDATE01 – 12/11/2014 – 19:20
Engineers are on-site and getting ready for the works listed above.

UPDATE02 – 12/11/2014 – 19:50
Engineers have advised that they are unable to gain remote access to ESXi01.R01 which is host to the EasyBond NOC. A server restart is required to restore access, however this will create additional outages for bonded circuts.

UPDATE03 – 12/11/2014 – 20:00
This work has now started.

UPDATE04 – 12/11/2014 – 20:20
Engineers where able to shutdown the EasyBond NOC without having to cause an outage at the time. The NOC will be offline for around an hour during this host migration.

If you reboot your bonded modem or if it looses coneection it will not eb able to reconnect until the NOC is back in service.

UPDATE05 – 12/11/2014 – 21:15
The EasyBond NOC is back in service. No other service migrations tonight are expected to cause any outages as they are redundant. We will advise once this work is complete

UPDATE06 – 12/11/2014 – 22:29
All work is now complete. Some of the EasyBond services still require some adational works and will be scheduled at a later date.
