[IDD #GGK-822233]: IDD LDM pluto.met.fsu.edu ip address change

Hi Kelly,

> or people we should notify? the date is flexible but time frame is not.

If forward and reverse DNS is setup for this machine after the IP
address change, then it is most likely that you will not need to do
anything.  This assumes, however, that the upstream LDM relay(s) that
you are REQUESTing from added ALLOW(s) for your feed REQUEST(s) using
the fully qualified name of your machine.

The most important thing for you to do is to work with your networking
folks to make sure that forward and reverse DNS is setup for pluto
as soon as it is moved to a new IP address.  The easiest way to test
to see if this has been done is to login to some machine other than
pluto and do a lookup (e.g., nslookup, dig, etc.) of your machine
by name and by IP address and verify that the name <-> IP address
and IP address <-> name are the same.


Sometimes it takes "a while" for the DNS setup to propagate through
the internet, so there is a possibility that you would stop receiving
your feeds until the propagation has been done.
