Data center will be performing maintenance on MBR01.DAL01 (Master Backend Router) in a continued effort to maintain router functionality, performance, and add additional feature sets. During this maintenance, Engineers will be augmenting the current MBR01.DAL01 router with a redundant pair. This maintenance is scheduled to start at 12:00 AM CST until 5:00 AM CST on March 6th, 2011 (3/6/2011). While no BCR routers on the private network are scheduled for maintenance, they will be directly impacted by this maintenance as private connectivity between BCR routers will be lost.1 S# S% W.

Customers are advised to disconnect any NAS and/or iSCSI mounts prior to this maintenance starting as a sudden loss of connectivity could potentially cause file system corruption and loss of data. Again, all customers on BCR01.DAL01, BCR02.DAL01, BCR03.DAL01, BCR04.DAL01, and BCR05.DAL01 will be directly impacted by the maintenance performed on MBR01.DAL01.5 \7 f# E; X$ ]# E, j
