Glasgow (DC1) – Shared Services Maintenance
***************************************
As part of our commitment to quality and continual improvement, we will be we will be carrying out core network maintenance on our routing infrastructure within our Glasgow DC1 Data Centre. This work is to change the HSRP operating mode of our core shared-infrastructure vlans to “version 2” and enable IPv6 routing to allow us to add IPv6 support to these shared-services in the future.

What will happen?

*****************

Our engineering team will be making a small configuration change to the HSRP configuration on our shared-services vlans to switch to HSRP version 2 rather than the default version 1 and enable IPv6 routing, which will also then allow us to add IPv6 support to these services at a later date.

When the change is made, the 2 routers involved in providing redundant gateways for the vlans in question will need to renegotiate which one is currently the Active node and which is the Standby node, this process can take up to 1 minute, during which there will be a outage to services within these vlans.

When will the work be carried out?
*****************************

The maintenance work will begin at 23:00 BST on 22 October 2019 and is expected to last for 1 hour until 00:00 BST on 22 October 2019.

Who will be completing the work?
****************************

All of the work will be completed by our network and infrastructure team.

Will I experience downtime?
************************

During this window, there will be a short period of downtime of no more than 5 minutes for some services whilst HSRP re-establishes.
