At 07.20 we have detected CRC errors, most likely caused by a flapping port on the connection between zone 5 towards the primary core. We have disabled the port for the time being, NOC is working together with an on-site engineer to debug and resolve this issue. In the mean time we are still seeing minor CRC errors on the secondary port, we will debug connection as well when finished with the primary port.

Update 12.30:
Investigation shows that the issue started within several hours after a firmware upgrade of the zone 5 core switch. The firmware upgrade and/or the reload of the switches caused the 40Gbps transceivers to have CRC errors. Changing and cleaning fiberpaths did not resolve the issue in full. Therefore, for the time being, at 11.10 we have switched the uplinks to a different bridge and fiberpath.

We will also perform firmware upgrade earlier on this day around 2 AM CEST using a different method of upgrading.




Update 14-08-2018 9:44:
The maintenance of 14 August 2018 is postponed due to incompatibility issues with the optics on the older devices. We suspect a firmware upgrade is required.

Update 15-8-2018 9:27:
We have verified that the optics are only compatible with the latest firmware and we have planned in firmware upgrades for both Zone 4 (On 23 August 2018) and Zone 5 (On 29 August 2018).

Update 23-08-2018 8:45:
There was an issue with the firmware upgrade using the ISSU method causing the switch to be stuck in ISSU unable to rollback or continue. Currently the switches are still running the old firmware. Currently we are investigating alternative ways for the upgrading and we will update this post when we are ready with additional options. In the meanwhile the vendor is investigating why ISSU is currently stuck.

Update 29-08-2018 04:15:
The upgrades are completed.
