I have heard from the RIPE NCC, they are going to attempt to upgrade our eqiad anchor in place, it may be down for a few days

There are also some diffscan changes, to be checked once everything is done.

To give a little more context: in response to us requesting an extension for the v2 anchors, the RIPE NCC team reached out to ask if they can run a test upgrade on our of anchors (which I of course said OK to!).

It seems that while it was successful, the eqiad anchro did not survive a reboot. They're asking for help with console access -- I looped in @CDanis to help them out with that, pulling in other team members (DC Ops for scs connection etc. as necessary). Thanks all :)

According to portmap is open to the world but I was not able to reproduce.

With the serial console now attached, I found myself in a rescue shell.

I poked around some, got / and /boot mounted under the empty /sysroot, looked at the failed kexec invocation in /proc/cmdline, and modified it to properly specify a root device for the kernel (previously it just listed /dev/mapper/vg01-lv_root instead of root=/dev/mapper/vg01-lv_root):

kexec -l /sysroot/boot/vmlinuz-3.10.0-1127.13.1.el7.x86_64 --initrd=/sysroot/boot/initramfs-3.10.0-1127.13.1.el7.x86_64.img --append="root=/dev/mapper/vg01-lv_root ro crashkernel=auto biosdevname=0 net.ifnames=0 console=ttyS0,19200n8 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 clocksource=tsc fsck.mode=force"
kexec -e

Now the system is back up, showing a login prompt, responding to ipv4 & ipv6 pings again as well as other traffic:

% curl

It doesn't yet show as back online on RIPE's site, but I suspect that's just eventual consistency at work.
