Has been a while since I checked the status of root servers which are hosted at NIXI. The list as per their official member list stays the same i.e i root in Mumbai, K root in Noida and F root in Chennai. i root seems to be up! show ip bgp neighbors 18.104.22.168 received-routes There are 5 received routes from neighbor 22.214.171.124 Searching for matching routes, use ^C to quit... Status A:AGGREGATE B:BEST b:NOT-INSTALLED-BEST C:CONFED_EBGP D:DAMPED E:EBGP H:HISTORY I:IBGP L:LOCAL M:MULTIPATH m:NOT-INSTALLED-MULTIPATH S:SUPPRESSED F:FILTERED s:STALE Prefix Next Hop MED LocPrf Weight Status 1 192.
And finally ACN i.e “Advanced Computer Networks” exam next. Hopefully less to cram in this one and syllabus is pretty interesting. Talking about networks - I am very happy to post this update. Finally F root server’s node in Chennai is back up! Though ISC did not updated me about this development but anyways I can always assume they were busy in hitting head with India bureaucratic bodies. :) If you are following my blog, you might have seen my past blog post about “Broken connectivity of F root server” due to NIXI’s routing policies.
