Well, here it is, 2:30AM, and I just crawled into bed after an overnight downtime at work. I’ve been working to move over T1 circuits from a DS3 to a Netvana 8044 pseudowire connection, and it’s been a disaster the entire way.
This is one of those projects that should have taken a day tops, but instead, took me the better half of a week because absolutely nothing went the way it should have, but I finally got everything squared away this evening. All 8 trunks are up and happy.
I must say, even with everything that went wrong, I feel accomplished. Sure, it would have went smoother with someone more experience with these circuits, but I kept going, and finally came out victorious in the end, and finally got to use my nearly 10 year old college education.
