Please be advised that a co.za EPP registry upgrade will take place on Tuesday 23 April 2013 at around 06h30 SAST.
The upgrade will include the following:
i General system security and performance updates.
ii Delaying SSL connection client authentication to after connection handshake (all .net clients should now be able to connect to the main production system).
iii Legacy domain renewal date corrections. These were imported with the time component incorrect.
iv Toggling auto-renew will no longer result in a Registrant notification.
v Registrant notifications now include the Registrar e-mail address as the Reply-To field.
vi Bug fix: Removal of subordinate hosts.
vii Bug fix: Not specifying the IP attribute for a glue record now returns no error (defaults IPv4 correctly).
Anticipated downtime should not exceed 60 minutes.
The above fixes have been live on the registrar test machine (OT&E) for some time already.
Please log any issues on the registry portal.
