Timeline with dates and status

Below is the timeline with scheduled dates for activities and milestones in the project. The timeline will be updated when an activity is completed or changes occur. The dates are tentative and may be adjusted if necessary.

Date Description Status
April 26, 2017 The proposed changes to the data model were presented at the registrar seminar, and published on Norid’s web. Done
May 11, 2017

Email was sent to the registrars with information about changes in data model. The deadline for submitting comments to the changes was set to 31 May 2017.

Done
June 2017 Norid reviewed all received comments to see if these would result in any adjustments of the thought changes.

We received a few comments, which were thoroughly discussed and evaluated. The conclusion was that none of the comments resulted in any changes. However, it was decided that the abuse contact should not be introduced. The changes in the data model will otherwise be as stated in the proposed changes.

 Done
June 28, 2017  Information about adopted new data model and the process for the introduction of the data model is published. Registrars are informed by email and web. Done
August – October 2017 The changes are documented, implemented and tested internally by Norid. Done
Mid October 2017 Strategy for forced data conversion is determined and describing information is published. Done
October 2017 Updated interface documentation for the new data model is published.

Done

November 1, 2017

A new test system running the new data model is offered to the registrars. The new test system will be configured with a copy of the current test database. The current test system is kept and will offer the old data model.

The service addresses for the new test system are listed below:

Test service Address Comment

EPP

epp2.test.norid.no (port 700)  

EPPClient

https://eppclient2.test.norid.no  

Registrar web

https://registrar2.test.norid.no  

PID

https://pid2.test.norid.no no changes are made for the new data model

Samtykke

https://samtykke2.test.norid.no no changes are made for the new data model

Whois (backend)

whois2.test.norid.no (port 43)  

DAS (backend)

finger2.test.norid.no (port 79) no changes are made for the new data model

Note:

  • The new test system uses a copy of the database from the other test system (copy from 2017-10-25).
  • User names and passwords are the same as in the other test system.
  • The new test system is configured to accept both old and new data model. Thus it is possible to create objects according to the old model, and then convert them to the new model. It is also possible to create objects directly according to the new model.
Done
November 30, 2017 A change in the data model has been decided. It will be a requirement that all technical contacts for delegations and name servers are role contacts. Relevant interface documentation is updated. Done
December 5, 2017 A detailed description (in English) of the changes are published, see Datamodell-revidert-en-v2.pdf Done
November 2, 2017 – January 8, 2018 Data conversion period in the new test system. The registrars are given the chance to update their data objects to match new data model. The new test system will need to support both new and old data models to support those updates. Registrars are given a deadline for January 8, 2018 to update their data. Data objects that are not updated within the deadline will be forcibly converted. Done
January 9, 2018

Forced data conversion in the new test system. Norid performs a forced data conversion on the remaining data objects in the new test system which do not conform to the new data model. This includes deleting all relationships and fax numbers, and organizational objects that are used for delegations are merged with their legal-c object.

Note: From now on, the new test system only supports the new data model.

 Done
November 2, 2017 – March 12, 2018 Registrars should adapt their own systems to the new data model and test against the new test system. Done
March 13, 2018 The new data model is put into production.  Done
March 13, 2018 – May 4, 2018 Data conversion period in the production system. The registrars are given the chance to update their data objects to match new data model. The production system will need to support both new and old data models to support those updates. Registrars are given a deadline for May 4, 2018 to update their data. Data objects that are not updated within the deadline will be forcibly converted.  Done
May 4, 2018 (from 18:00 CET) Forced data conversion in the production system. Norid performs a forced data conversion for remaining data objects in the production system that violates new data model. This includes deleting all relationships and fax numbers, and organizational objects that are used for delegations are merged with their legal-c object. From now on, the production system only supports new data model.  Done
May 5, 2018 (from 12:00 CET) The production system is running with the new data model. The project monitors the result and performs corrections if necessary.  Done
May 7 2018

The old test system is obsolete and will be shut down. All service addresses of type  ‘*2.test.norid.no’ are stopped.

All  test services are now running on the new test machine, and are reached via the regular ‘*.test.norid.no’ service addresses.

 

 Done
May 2018 The project ends. Done
