AUNIC Problems and outages
Scheduled outage 2004-09-26 for aunic
The aunic server was moved to a different rack (the new one
is specifically for auDA equipment) on Sunday morning.
The down-time for this move was
8:00am to 08:15am on 26 September.
2004-03-09 aunic back online
aunic.aunic.net is now online. Initially it is just handling DNS
functions from box2 (primary DNS for the .au zone, secondary DNS
for some 2LDs and gov.au 3LDs), mail to aunic.net and www.aunic.net.
Other functions (such as whois, keyserver, registration services)
may be restored over time.
2004-02-14 box2 outage
The main aunic machine, box2.aunic.net has been suffering from hardware
issues and is not staying up for more than a few hours. The machine
will be replaced by a totally new machine called aunic.aunic.net.
For information about the transition of 2LDs from AUNIC to AusRegistry,
which will involve some AUNIC functions being closed down at the end
of June 2002, please follow the link:
Changes to the AUNIC site
There was a problem with the com.au zone on the morning of March 14.
AUNIC services have now been moved to a new machine.
There are no serious problems yet recorded for that machine.
Please ensure that you do not have any references to aunic.telstra.net,
or hard-coded IP addresses, you should only refer to www.aunic.net
(for html pages) or cgi.aunic.net (for cgi scripts, although most
people should not directly refer to AUNIC cgi scripts,
unless you have permission from auda).
