...BOULDER AND COLLEGE PARK DATA CENTER RECOVERY - UPDATE...

Troubleshooting the bad critical hardware in the Boulder data
center continues.
IDP Nowcoast was moved into optimal state with a failover to
Boulder. IDP NOMADS, it has been stable all day and is only
occasionally slow to respond to requests, we are moving it off
the degraded list.
IDP applications in a degraded state:
 - IRIS/iNWS/HCE (IRIS Website down, IPAWS and CAP are okay)
 - MADIS (Auto Flood Warning System not getting data)
 - MRMS (missing some hourly products)
 - GISC-Washington is offline.

WCOSS is missing several data sets from CP internet issues, but
there are no model production failures. The internet is degraded
for WFOs, CWSUs, WPC, OPC, and Guam. AWC and NWC confirmed that
the Internet is functioning after a workaround was put in place,
but it is not at 100%. Some Internet capabilities have been
established for WPC, OPC, and CPC.

CPC is unable to establish ftp connections for data
transfers/ingest in support of CPC operations.

WPC has degraded IDSS and collaboration capabilities.

Anchorage Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) is unable to
effectively monitor volcanic ash threats, due to an ongoing loss
of Himawari satellite imagery into AWIPS/N-AWIPS.

NCO continues to work on restoring the Boulder data center in
order to fail all applications, so we may reboot the College Park
firewall.

SENIOR DUTY METEOROLOGIST NWS ADMINISTRATIVE MESSAGE NWS NCEP CENTRAL OPERATIONS COLLEGE PARK MD 1206Z TUE JUN 30 2020 ..Alaska Region VRF migration and outage today (June 30)... Bottom Line Up Front: Today (June 30th), NCO will be reconfiguring the Wide Area Network (WAN) connections between the Alaska Region and their telecom provider CenturyLink. This is the last remaining region to be migrated. For 2.5 hours (1800Z - 2030Z), there will be a complete outage for the Alaska Region. This includes total loss of external resources outside Alaska Region as well as loss of internal resources within Alaska region. One of the Key impacts is No Ability to issue forecast and warning products. More details, including specific impacts, are provided below. In the event of CWD that affects Alaska Region, this migration will be postponed. Why: These changes will be the last in a series of regional site migrations. The Alaska region connects to Silver Spring via tunnels, while other oconus regions connect to MPLS cloud for better redundancy. This migration will ensure WAN traffic leaving Alaska region will no longer be traversing tunnels to Silver Spring, but peering directly with Centurylink per VRF. This project is also a dependency towards Silver Spring Enterprise Migration move. Maintenance Date/Time: Start Date/Time: 6/30/2020 at 1800Z (2:00pm ET) Stop Date/Time: 7/2/2020 at 2300Z (7:00pm ET) Maintenance Window Details: Impact Window - Total of two hours and thirty minutes of estimated downtime today(Tuesday 6/30/2020) from 1800Z to 2030Z. This block of time is when the actual move of the VRFs infrastructure will occur and the impacts listed below will be experienced. Following the downtime, all the traffic for all impacted sites will be restored. Testing & Troubleshooting Window - The remainder of the maintenance time (6/30/2020 2030Z to 2300Z; 7/1/2020 1800Z to 2300Z and 7/2/2020 1800Z to 2300Z) will be to address any immediately reported or observed fallout from the internet traffic migration. Physical Maintenance Location: Alaska Regional Headquarters, WFO Anchorage Maintenance will Impact the following sites: -Alaska Region HQ -Anchorage Sand Lake Facility -Juneau WFO -NTWC (National Tsunami Warning Center) -Fairbanks WFO -FC-DAS/NESDIS -ZAN CWSU What Will be Impacted During the Downtime: -Complete loss of traffic for Alaska Region, we will perform maintenance for one VRF at a time. Each VRF will have an estimated 30 minutes of downtime. We will announce on the bridge call as we start moving VRF at a time. -Management VRF: Management traffic so will break monitoring for Alaska Region -AWIPS VRF: External AWIPS traffic outside Alaska Region -Tsunami VRF: Tsunami traffic won’t be available from Alaska Region -Redundant connection to NWSTG -Loss of seismic ingest from 5 data providers -Loss of capability to submit products to tsunami.gov -Enterprise VRF: Internet traffic for Enterprise VRF for Alaska Region -NCEP VRF: Internal Alaska MPLS cloud impacted, sites within Alaska Region won’t be able to communicate while we move this VRF. Public data and services that will be affected include: -Some surface and hydrologic observations will be unavailable. -Some ship observations will be unavailable. -Upper-air observations, excluding Barrow and Anchorage, may be delayed. -The Alaska Weather Information Line will not update. -NOAA Weather Radio at the following sites will be out of service: Barrow, Kotzebue, Nome, Bethel, Saint Paul, Unalaska, Cold Bay, and Yakutat. -No Ability to issue forecast and warning products, including TAFS What Will NOT be Impacted During the Downtime: -Resources available on local LAN at each individual location. Post Deployment: NCO will maintain a post deployment maintenance window of two (2) business days to fix any issues that are reported as a fallout from the migration.

SENIOR DUTY METEOROLOGIST NWS ADMINISTRATIVE MESSAGE NWS NCEP CENTRAL OPERATIONS COLLEGE PARK MD 1206Z MON JUN 29 2020 ...Alaska Region VRF migration and outage today (June 29)... Bottom Line Up Front Today (June 29th), NCO will be reconfiguring the Wide Area Network (WAN) connections between the Alaska Region and their telecom provider CenturyLink. This is the last remaining region to be migrated. For 2.5 hours (1800Z - 2030Z), there will be a complete outage for the Alaska Region. This includes total loss of external resources outside Alaska Region as well as loss of internal resources within Alaska region. One of the Key impacts is No Ability to issue forecast and warning products. More details, including specific impacts, are provided below. In the event of CWD that affects Alaska Region, this migration will be postponed. Why: These changes will be the last in a series of regional site migrations. The Alaska region connects to Silver Spring via tunnels, while other oconus regions connect to MPLS cloud for better redundancy. This migration will ensure WAN traffic leaving Alaska region will no longer be traversing tunnels to Silver Spring, but peering directly with Centurylink per VRF. This project is also a dependency towards Silver Spring Enterprise Migration move. Maintenance Date/Time: Start Date/Time: 6/29/2020 at 1800Z (2:00pm ET) Stop Date/Time: 7/1/2020 at 2300Z (7:00pm ET) Maintenance Window Details Impact Window - Total of two hours and thirty minutes of estimated downtime today (Monday 6/29/2020) from 1800Z to 2030Z. This block of time is when the actual move of the VRFs infrastructure will occur and the impacts listed below will be experienced. Following the downtime, all the traffic for all impacted sites will be restored. Testing & Troubleshooting Window - The remainder of the maintenance time (6/29/2020 2030Z to 2300Z; 6/30/2020 1800Z to 2300Z and 7/1/2020 1800Z to 2300Z) will be to address any immediately reported or observed fallout from the internet traffic migration. Physical Maintenance Location: Alaska Regional Headquarters, WFO Anchorage Maintenance will Impact the following sites: Alaska Region HQ Anchorage Sand Lake Facility Juneau WFO NTWC (National Tsunami Warning Center) Fairbanks WFO FC-DAS/NESDIS ZAN CWSU What Will be Impacted During the Downtime- Complete loss of traffic for Alaska Region, we will perform maintenance for one VRF at a time. Each VRF will have an estimated 30 minutes of downtime. We will announce on the bridge call as we start moving VRF at a time. Management VRF - Management traffic so will break monitoring for Alaska Region AWIPS VRF - External AWIPS traffic outside Alaska Region Tsunami VRF - Tsunami traffic won’t be available from Alaska Region Redundant connection to NWSTG Loss of seismic ingest from 5 data providers Loss of capability to submit products to tsunami.gov Enterprise VRF - Internet traffic for Enterprise VRF for Alaska Region NCEP VRF - Internal Alaska MPLS cloud impacted, sites within Alaska Region won’t be able to communicate while we move this VRF. Public data and services that will be affected include: -Some surface and hydrologic observations will be unavailable. -Some ship observations will be unavailable. -Upper-air observations, excluding Barrow and Anchorage, may be delayed. -The Alaska Weather Information Line will not update. -NOAA Weather Radio at the following sites will be out of service: Barrow, Kotzebue, Nome, Bethel, Saint Paul, Unalaska, Cold Bay, and Yakutat. -No Ability to issue forecast and warning products, including TAFS What Will NOT be Impacted During the Downtime: -Resources available on local LAN at each individual location. Post Deployment: NCO will maintain a post deployment maintenance window of two (2) business days to fix any issues that are reported as a fallout from the migration. If issues are discovered after the two day window, Please contact NCO’s SDM at 301-683-1500 and NCO will address these issues through our operational support process.
