DNS Cleanup - 7/20/20-7/31/20

UPDATE: We are extending this maintenance for an additional week.

WHAT’S HAPPENING?

TSO will perform an audit of existing DNS entries to find unused IP addresses that can be freed up for future use.

WHEN IS IT HAPPENING?

The audit will be performed intermittently from July 20th through July 24th, between the hours of 8AM and 5PM. 

Edit: The audit will continue from July 27th through July 31st, between the hours of 8AM and 5PM. 

WHY IS IT HAPPENING?

TSO will perform an audit of existing DNS entries and clean up any that have not been in use since January 1st, 2019. As entries are removed, we will also take this opportunity to clean up the associated VMPS entries and firewall rules. TSO is performing this audit free up unused IP addresses so they can be reallocated.
