SENIOR DUTY METEOROLOGIST NWS ADMINISTRATIVE MESSAGE
NWS NCEP CENTRAL OPERATIONS COLLEGE PARK MD
1500Z WED JAN 17 2018


UPCOMING TEST OF IDP FAILOVER/BACKUP NEXT WEEK

The week of January 22nd, NCEP Central Operations (NCO) will
conduct a major failover and backup test of our IDP systems in
College Park and Boulder.   On Monday January 22nd at 10am
Eastern, NCO will announce an outage of the Boulder IDP system
and will fail all operations over to the College Park IDP system.
  On Wednesday January 24th at 10am Eastern, NCO will annoucne an
outage of the College Park IDP systems and will fail all
operations and applications over to the Boulder IDP system.

NCO will not turn off any applications or systems during this
week of testing.  A small number of systems don`t have backups at
both sites yet -- in those cases those applications will not be
shut down during this testing.  The only anticipated impact to
users would be the normal brief outages experienced during any
site-to-site failovers of IDP.   If you do experience any issues
during this week of testing, please contact NCO`s Senior Duty
Meteorologist (SDM) at sdm@noaa.gov  or 301-683-1500 and we will
have our support teams look into the issue immediately.
