Network Loss Potential - Essential Maintenance

12 Jun 2021, 18:00 – 22:30

We intend to direct all outbound traffic to go via the backup link at Stafford, as such internal clients using services should not be affected. 

The affected services will be:

 

Direct Access - Loss of multi-site high availability and all traffic routing via Stafford - Clients will likely experience slower performance

 

OpenVPN - Loss of multi-site high availability and all traffic routing via Stafford - Clients will have to connect to the backup profile in their client

 

External Remote Management - EMIS remote access will not be available should there be an outage

 

Remote Desktop/Cloud PC/VDI - These services will be configured to route via Stafford, however there will be periods of downtime as NHS Digital undertake the required DNS changes - We would advise that users are told that the system will likely be unavailable during this time

 

Staffs Fire - Wireless users will be unable to connect

 

N3 and Internet Access 


This work is critical to return the services back to normal levels of resilience.
