There will be a software patch to the network fabric switches in the monash-02 zone of the Research Cloud to patch the bug that could cause the switches to crash potentially.
Date: 17th Oct 2018
Time: 09:30 am to 14:00 noon
Although this maintenance is expected to be non-disruptive, in the event of switch software issues there may be some short (1-2 minute) interruption to the external and intra-zone network as redundant pairs synchronize.
This topic will be updated with progress, issues and completion information as they become available.
Please take note that the schedule has been revised to start from 09:30 am.
We were not able to complete the maintenance due to some issue with automation. Currently, the network is back to normal.
We will schedule another window to complete the patching.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
