Notes from Mar 2014 maintenance

This note summarizes the results of maintenance on XO-BBN, XO-RCI, XO-FIU, XO-UFL, XO-SL racks and ExoSM controller.

The highlights

The purpose of the maintenance event was to reconfigure several of the racks to allow for wider range of vlans to be usable for stitching.

  • New rack XO-UCD at UC Davis was added, however it is not fully reachable due to unresolved connectivity in CENIC.
  • The rack at Starlight (XO-SL) has been reconfigured to use the currently available narrow range of vlans and added support for GEC19 SDX demo via vlan 1655.
  • Support for SONIC cards was added to XO-RCI and XO-UCD
  • A controller bug was resolved in ExoSM

Connectivity caveats

Not all racks currently visible through ExoSM can be reached using stitching. We expect these issues should be resolved in the immediate future:

  • XO-UCD connectivity via CENIC across all vlans
    • Resolved on 03/07/2014
  • XO-SL connectivity across all vlans
    • Resolved on 03/12/2014
  • XO-NICTA continues to have problems with vlans 4003 and 4005
  • XO-BBN has a problem with vlan 2601 in NOX/BBN network
    • Resolved on 04/05/2014
  • Direct connectivity between XO-UFL and XO-FIU across all vlans
    • Resolved on 05/20/14
