Following on from recent repeated hardware failures on core03.structuredcommunications.co.uk as detailed HERE the decision has been taken to fully replace the device. We will also be taking the opportunity to upgrade the IOS image to bring this device in line with the current images across the rest of our network.
This work will involve powering down and physically moving the current device along with all installed line cards. Due to this all directly connected services (listed below) will be unavailable for the duration of the works.
> Bonded DSL on AG1 & AG2
> un-managed SIP trunking provided via sipwise.easyipt.co.uk
> Managed VoIP services provided via primary-sw.r03.core03 & primary-sw.r04.core03
> Webhosting via server01.easyhttp.co.uk
> VPS sessions on esxi10.r02.structuredcommunications.co.uk
Other services will remain unaffected. Redundant services provided via other parts of the network (Such as DNS & SMTP) will take over. Please ensure you configuration is up to date.
UPDATE01 – 20:10 – 24/08/2016 Engineers are on site and these works have started.
UPDATE02 – 22:06 – 24/08/2016 Engineers have completed the above works ahead of schedule and we can confirm all services have returned to normal. We apologize for the inconvenience caused.
We will continue to monitor the new device to ensure continued operation.
