Maintenance: Central Firewall

Message-Id: 202001291707
Time: 30.01.2020, 17:00 – 19:00 o’ clock
Affected: All networks behind the central firewall (All GWDG-services, all university institutes, Wifi)
Impact: Scheduled none

Due to software errors in the currently used firmware of the central GÖNET-firewall, maintenance work have to be performed on short notice. We will change the system, which subsists of two devices, successively to another firmware.

According to manufacturer’s information, our experience and the conducted test, no failures should occur, since one device of the redundant pair will always be available.
