Melbourne, 2 May 2002 - auDA has received notification from AusRegistry that they have completed construction of all registry systems and begun system wide testing.

Registry hardware is operational inside secure multi-homed redundant data centres at Connect Pty Ltd’s and AusRegistry premises. Several data transitions of existing .au domain name data into the new registry have been completed successfully.

auDA test bed and provisionally accredited registrars are well underway constructing their new interface systems and are connecting and communicating with the registry.

auDA will commence acceptance testing of the registry on Tuesday 7 May 2002. At the completion of the acceptance testing auDA will announce the date upon which the new systems and the new regime will ‘go live’.
