[#837] Urgent Router Reloads GSA and AM7 (Maintenance)

Posted: 2019-10-02 13:11

Start: 2019-10-03 00:00:00
End : 2019-10-04 08:30:00

Affects: Traffic GSA and AM7

Due to issues with iBGP we are forced to reload the routers during the following times:

Global Switch Amsterdam will be reloaded Thursday, 3 October 2019 at 0:00 AM CEST.
Equinix AM7 will be reloaded Saturday, 5 October 2019 at 0:00 AM CEST.

During the reload times, all traffic is redirected to the other datacenter and transit providers.

If you do not have a redundant BGP session, or have internet connectivity/transit at this location, you may notice full downtime during the reload.

Update 3 October 2019, 6:30 AM:
The maintenance is cancelled as it had no effect on Global Switch Amsterdam router.
However during the maintenance on Global Switch Amsterdam router, we did found the cruelpit on the AMSIX routeservers. Currently it is no longer present and the full routes are being send without any problems.

Update 4 October 2019, 8:30 AM:
The maintenance for AM7 is dropped as the issue was not resolved by reloading the router, but a conflicting peer on the AMSIX routeservers.
