unplanned network outage at svtix

| | Comments (1)
So we are preparing to move our servers from svtix to market post tower. We are going to change some of our vlan numbers during the move so we can share vlan number space with egi and run vlans over their network between the 2 sites. I changed one of the vlan numbers that I didn't think would affect the routing for everything here, but it did.

 Luckily I was able to get to SVTIX pretty quickly and fix it within an hour, but of course it was a stupid mistake and I should have done it when I was already here. I'm still planning to be here tomorrow for more of this work, which is when I should have done this, but users should be prepared for another shorter outage tomorrow. We are going to move our port with egi to a tagged port so that we can run more vlans over it for moving the servers. Anyway, sorry for the trouble. I should really know better, and in the future I will make sure to do these changes when I'm on site.


It's really great that you guys are so forthcoming. Got the downtime alerts, but did't see anything here. Came back later and see this post. Downtime sucks, but unexplained downtime sucks a lot more.
