Maintenance Work Scheduled for Saturday, 24 March

Posted: Thursday, 22 March 2012

On Saturday, 24 March 2012 ARIN will be conducting maintenance on back-end systems in order to upgrade the management applications for ARIN Online and upgrade Whois-RWS. The work will take place from 6:00 AM until approximately 5:00 PM EDT.  There are two phases to this work window. 

Between 6:00 AM and 1:00 PM EDT ARIN users will experience interruption of three external services while this maintenance is performed. For the duration, you will not be able to log in to your ARIN Online account. Any mail sent to Registration Services will be queued and not immediately acknowledged. Additionally, transactions submitted via ARIN’s RESTful Provisioning service will be rejected with an outage error. Once the systems are back online, you will regain use of your ARIN Online account and queued mail will be processed. You will need to resubmit any RESTful calls sent during the outage so they can be processed. Whois services may be degraded during this time.

Between 12:00 PM and 5:00 PM EDT, all ARIN services will be available, but Whois services may be degraded while the system updates are completed.

All other ARIN publicly available services  (IRR, website, etc) will be available during this outage.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
