On Monday, April 23, 2018, the NCF will be
switching its Server Operations from the Backup
AWIPS NCF (BNCF) in Fairmont, WV to the
Primary AWIPS NCF (ANCF) in Silver Spring, MD. The
switch transition will take place as follows:
.
0500 UTC - ITO switch to ANCF
1115 UTC - DSUP switch to ANCF
1215 UTC - MHS switch to ANCF
1315 UTC - SBN switch to ANCF
1315 UTC - COLLABORATION switch to ANCF
1315 UTC - Data Delivery switch to ANCF
.
The switch will not be done on a critical weather
day, or if there are other significant operational
issues warranting postponement.
.
All ANCF message distribution (MHS) will be
repointed to the BNCF. The switch will take about
20 minutes. Data will queue while the switch is in
progress and will be sent once the switch is
complete. This will affect data originating at NWS
field offices and National Centers on the AWIPS
network including radar data.
.
Any questions or issues should be addressed to the
AWIPS/NCF helpdesk at 301-713-9344.
