Good morning, 

As reported previously, a routing issue experienced with one of the new Palo Alto firewalls at the Iron Mountain Data Center caused a NO GO decision to be received, and a successful implementation of the Roll Back Plan for this effort was done.

The Firewall Migration will be rescheduled after the root cause of the above mentioned issue has been determined and resolved. 

As of 5:35 AM, the November IPL of the mainframe was completed successfully.

The Technical and Tester Bridge lines have both been terminated at this time.

This will be the final notification for this event.

Good moring, 

Due to an OSPF routing issue experienced on one of our new Palo Alto firewalls, we received a NO GO decision on moving forward with the Firewall Migration event, and have successfully rolled back to our old firewalls at the State Data Center.   

In the meantime, the IBM Operations team is continuing to move forward with the monthly IPL of the mainframe for November.

The next update will be published at 6:00 AM.

 

Sunday, November 18, 2018 - 04:24

Good morning, 

Unfortaunately, as of 4:20 AM, the routing issue with OSPF on the new secondary firewall could not be resolved.

With this in mind, we have received a NO GO decision, and we are now in the process of implementing our Roll Back Plan.

The Technical Team is still gathering information, and this Firewall Migration effort will be rescheduled for another time in the future.
