Lab Details

You will be able to perform application testing from either of the labs. You will need to identify and remember which one of the two remote labs you are using only in the following scenario:

During a remote lab session, you have the option to modify the configuration of the system to meet your particular needs and may have taken a configuration back-up. If you intend to continue the testing in your future remote lab sessions by restoring your custom configuration back-up, you must remember and subsequently specifically request the particular remote lab (Lab 2 or Lab 3) that you used when the configuration back-up was taken. For your future sessions, you will need to request that particular remote lab by indicating a specific lab preference by selecting appropriate field in the remote lab reservation form.

Any backup made prior to August 26, 2019 will only work with Self Services/POM Lab 2. An attempt to restore such a backup to Lab 3 will make the lab non-functional requiring DevConnect team member intervention to restore the lab to a working state.

Restoring back-up of one lab in other will make the lab non-functional. e.g. Configuration back-up taken from Lab 2 must not be restored on Lab3 and vice-versa. Recovery at least one full business day. Please work carefully to avoid this mistake. Backup and restoral instructions are in the Avaya Self Service Remote Lab 3 Instruction Manual.

Lab Scheduling

Self Service Remote Lab time is scheduled in 6-hour sessions 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Sessions begin at 2am, 8am, 2pm, and 8pm Eastern Time.
