Datacenter routers maintenance, scheduled 2 years ago

A reconfiguration of our routers has been planned in our datacenter of Gembloux. The maintenance could interrupt some existing connections. In the event a downtime should occur, it shouldn't last more than 5 minutes.

Progress:

  • 21:00 we start the changes on our routers. (High-availability reconfiguration)
  • 21:15 the changes have impacted the network communications from outside as well as inside. the routers are being upgraded and rebooted. we except the network traffic to be restored afterward.
  • 21:30 the routers are updated. We check if everything is back to normal
  • 21:40 all system checked, after the upgrade the traffic has been restored.
