Comment:        ** The below maintenance was originally scheduled for April 1st and has been rescheduled for April 29th **

The loadbalancer in the IST server room needs to be updated to apply software patches.

This will involve several failovers as each device is upgraded individually and verified.

During the service window, connectivity to load balanced services will be interrupted multiple times.

The actual impact to user traffic will not be the entire hour and half. During this timeframe service will still be available, however user connections may get reset as the failovers occur. 

This is a general alert regarding the load balancer activity and is not intended to identify the individual services affected. More specific notifications will be made, where necessary, by the service administrators.
