need to free up 4u of rack space in anticipation for vidyo and nsm installation. i'll be on site next monday and tuesday (7/27-7/28) to move some patch panels around. i dont anticipate any downtime for any hardware but this is just a heads up. if there is any risk of any host downtime, i will postpone until after hours.
after i free up the 4u of rack space, i will be installing an NSM server for opsec. we will need to configure port monitoring and test but this will be done after hours as well so i dont expect any downtime. rollback plan: unplug network cable to NSM server and rollback configurations.
last minute change of plans, we're going to move this work back 1 week - 8/3 and 8/4.
freed up 4u rack space by moving some patch panels around and replacing 2u for 1u cable managers. reran some cables that were just strewn across the racks or were ran incorrectly.
