On Monday morning, Oct. 22nd, between 6:00 am and 7:00 am, DoIT Network Services will be swapping in a server. Its most well-known names are:

  • dns.doit.wisc.edu
  • dogie.macc.wisc.edu
  • dolphin.doit.wisc.edu

(although it has others).

Affected services:

  1. Campus DNS users that don't also use some other DNS server as a backup.
  2. All DoIT-DSL customers (trying to get a lease during that hour);
  3. Campus NTP users that don't also use some other NTP server as a backup;
  4. DHCP users on the following LANs:
    • DoIT Staff (all sites), DoIT Help Desk;
    • InfoLabs: Dayton, IMCC, Math, Middleton, Weston
    • International Institute

Although there is a 1-hour 'window', the actual outage should not last longer than 20 minutes.
