Brief Description:
User Impact:
Since the campus relies on DNS round robin, applications that connect to ds1.directory.cornell.edu for LDAP will no longer get the data.\n\nThis will happen only during the restart period.
Workaround:
There is no workaround for this issue

Full Description:
After S&O rebuilt yew8 from RHEL 4 to RHEL 5, they noticed that yew8 had two tier 1 network drops (rather than what we'd ordered, tier 1 and tier 2 for network redundancy).\n\nS&O switched eth1 to tier 2 this week. According to them, it is a good idea to do a quick network restart to clear out some old errors and fully pick up new stuff.\n\nIt will take less than 5 secs to do this restart.
