PaulBrislen: Overwhelming customer demand is a good problem to have. Usually.

ok,

But its a fault whichever way you dress it up right. Either the equipment was/is faulty and failed to release addresses as it should, or its a poor planning in that you didn't see it coming and plan accordingly, or perhaps you need the larger pool until you can find out why the equipment is failing to release unused addresses?

All of which we're doing. Anything that impacts on the customers is a "fault". We absolutely apologise and are working to get it fixed so customers never notice IP addresses ever again... all I'm doing here is trying to explain what happened and why.

cheers

No equipment failed and IPs were released back into the IP pool when PDP context deactivation done.

Issue caused by unexpected huge Growth on the mobile network in the last few weeks and not enough IPs to allocate to users when PDP activation done resulting in error 619.

IP pool increased 50 percent late yesterday afternoon with another further increase in the coming weeks

Thanks John

Just had some issues with a few customers in Blenheim - basically they are getting the error code 619 with trying to connect a On Account Vodem.

This is the first so far as I have heard of, since I was using my Vodem yesterday and actually getting some truly epic speeds.

Can you please post more information in case someone from Vodafone checks it out? What was the APN in use?

APN in use was vodafone.net.nz
A staff member from our store over there rung me, and explained "The customer has normally had no issues connecting until today, he's now getting error 619" - The salesperson didn't know what to do, he tried reinstalling the VMC Software, rebooting etc with no success. But then the other guy in store has had the same issue today as well with another customer, I explained it could well be Network Issues and to get the customers number so I can follow it up later.
