NETWORK ALERT - 2009-03-03 - Resnet: rn-ns2 maintenance

Description: Resnet: rn-ns2 maintenance
Date: (YYYY-MM-DD) 2009-03-03
Time: 09:00 - 11:00
Impact: Resnet
Submitted by: jbgorrie@uwaterloo.ca

Comment: Virtualizing the secondary DNS/DHCP server for resnet. Currently the secondary runs on older hardware and it is outside currently supported hardware. The primary hardware, a much newer machine, will remain a physical machine.

As a side benefit the DNS throughput on the secondary will be up to five times greater.
