Code Upgrade on PSU Border Routers
On Friday, 8/26, at 4:30 AM, new operating system code will be loaded on to the two Penn State border routers, Telecom5 and Windstream1. Testing this morning, 8/25, revealed that the failure condition causing a loss of Internet connectivity twice on Tuesday, 8/23, could be replicated. This failure state can occur on its own with no warning. For that reason it was determined that the best course of action is to load the new operating system code which fixes multiple bugs that appear to precipitate this failure condition. Immediately following the new code load Friday morning, additional testing will be done to confirm if the issue is resolved. This testing could interrupt Internet connectivity for periods of time between 4:30 AM and 7:00 AM on Friday morning. An additional announcement will be posted Friday morning with the results of that testing.
