We need to do some maintenance on our c7200-1.bdr.mpls.iphouse.net
router to clear out its memory fragentation yet again. This will
happen at 1:15AM CDT on 7/26/2012.
The router is not responding correctly for management right now,
and unfortunatly a reboot is the only means provided to clear up
this problem so we can correctly manage this router again.
This router handles T1 connections and some DSL for many customers,
and has a few BGP setups on it as well. No other customers will be
affected by this reboot. We're wary of upgrades on this router, as
many other bugs were in IOS code trains around this one relating to
DSL services, and what other problems upgrading will bring out.
We have taken a new tact in attempting to manage memory fragmentation
that will happen after this reboot.
We'll monitor and make sure our connections are restored after this
maintenance window in complete.
If you have any problems or questions please let us know at
[log in to unmask], or call us up at 612-337-6340.
