Impact:           Building Router Traffic

Comment:        Between 6am and 8am on Tuesday April 15th users may experience a brief disruption in their traffic as routers converge. Traffic within a 'building unit' will not be affected. 

In preparation for the campus firewalls the uplinks for each router will be moved into an appropriate VRF. As part of this process it is necessary to remove and re-apply the point to point ipv4/ipv6 addresses on the core routers to each building. These changes will be done one building at a time and one link at a time. Building routers are redundantly connected and so a complete outage is not anticipated.

In the event of an issue the configuration will be reverted to its original state.

The firewall will not be activated at this time, these changes are only for the preparation of enabling the firewall. 
More details regarding the activation of the firewall will be announced at a later time.
