Deployment

The deployment of this system was an install and swap cut-over. The systems were installed in the data center, the MX was interconnected to the backbone, and the servers were repatched to the new switches. Sounds simple enough, but the pain was in the details.

Initial Connectivity

Once the initial connectivity of the system was verified, it was time to cut the system into the backbone and verify that all components could talk to the world. Prior to doing this, a few changes had to be performed on the MX. If you remember, the static routes for the servers were redistributed to OSPF at the MX. This redistribution would have cut off service to the servers before we were ready if it remained active. The export policy on the MX was deactivated to prevent this issue.
