Configuration change in data center networking

Data Centers is planning to make changes to the network in our Hershey UTC data center on 1/27/2018 from 12:01am to 7am. Please find more information about the change below. This work is pending CAB approval.

Will this effect my services running in the data centers?

If you have equipment in UTC you will experience a network outage for between a brief outage and 20 minutes if your equipment is not connected redundantly to the network. This is for Tiers 1, 2A, 2B, and 3. The difference in outage is dependent on if the in place upgrade works or if we have to do the full reboot.

For additional information please see:
