We are getting memory alerts on the switch that feeds most of the colocation customers at the 1325 Tracy location. An IOS bug is causing memory failures during routine network operations. To resolve this issue an immediate manual fail-over to the secondary management card is needed. The secondary management card has been modified to run a newer firmware that resolves the IOS issue, however this will require the secondary management card be in a "STANDBY COLD" state instead of "STANDBY HOT" due to feature and version differences. This will result in a longer downtime during the fail-over process but hopefully fully resolve the issue. We are going to issue the fail-over command immediately and expect it to take between 5-15 minutes to fully recover.
