Category - Device Failover Testing (Geo)
Description - Geographic Device Failover Testing (Geo)
Impact - Medium- multiple outages can be expected of up to 10 minutes each.
Location - Calgary\Ottawa Nodes (Currently staged in Calgary)
Planned Start - 2018-03-10 08:00 AM Mountain (Alberta) - HOLIDAY EASTER FRIDAY
Planned End - 2018-03-10 09:59 AM Mountain (Alberta) - HOLIDAY EASTER FRIDAY
We are doing device failover tests between Geo Nodes to confirm the re-registration of devices to ensure proper behaviour in the future unlikely event we need to move call traffic from one Datacenter or another or load balance calls between Datacenters. This is purely a test of phone registration and Core Phone services like AA, Queues, voicemail, etc. should not be affected by this test.
This test is in advance of moving equipment into the Ottawa Datacenter this spring and is occurring during a planned maintenance window. This is a 2-hour test window to allow us to thoroughly test various scenarios and perform multiple tests while collecting statistics.
There is a possibility that some calls will not be able to be made or received from the handset for up to 10 minutes at a time during this time. We expect desk phones to un-register from the Calgary Node and re-register on the Ottawa Node and then back again to the re-register at the Calgary Node.
This device registration process can take a few minutes and we will gather the timing statisitcs for future reference during the testing. Phones may show as unregistered during the testing and registration processes. Additionally -- manually configured phones, like some older phone models, some older firmware and mobile\desktop softphones will not failover - this is expected behavior and anticipated and will be out of service during the test periods of up to 10 minutes each.
