Topic: JPSS CGS EM-File Transfer Outage impacting TLE and SGE report transfer To/From Ground Stations To/From CGS Landing Zones

Date/Time Issued: July 6, 2024, 0511Z

Product or Data Impacted: The JPSS CGS Ground Station Stored Mission Data Ground Equipment (SGE) reports and Two Line Elements(TLE) are currently not available due to EM-FTS outage at the Ground Stations, brought about by accidental install of newer Tectia version(6.6).  Efforts are in work to roll back Tectia version to current Operational version.

Date/Time of Initial Impact:   July 2, 2024  

Date/Time of Expected End: July 5, 2024 2200Z

Length of the Outage/Event: ~ 3 days (unplanned)

Details/Specifics of Change: During the JPSS CGS Mx2.7 I&T installs, an accidental Installation of Tectia 6.6 was done to SVL, McM, Darmstadt (& FCDAS) to Operational Ground Stations. I&T GS (SVICOEMF201,202) , MCICOEMF201,202) (WSICOEMF201,202) (FBICOEMF201,202) got mistakenly installed out to Actual Ground Stations (SVACOEMF201,202), (MCACOEMF201,202), (DSACOEMF201,202) (FBACOEMF201,202). The Actual GS Tectia 6.6 update is still being planned after a Tectia 6.6 checkout on Mx2.7 in I&T. We have enlisted LGSS support to normalize non-NOAA site Ground Stations by rolling back Tectia to current Operational Version( Version 6.4).   Manual File Transfers will be initiated if rollback efforts fail.
