Urgent: No
Sections: 1.7.3,,
Description: This OGRR requires a Market Participant possessing a backup site to utilize a WAN (Wide Area Network) Domain Name Service (DNS) server or an ERCOT provided Web-Based DNS service to facilitate the API (Application Program Interface) failover process when moving to or from their backup site.
Reason: The current process requires ERCOT personnel to manually enter changes on the ERCOT API to follow a Market Participant™s API when a Market Participant moves operations between its Primary and Backup sites. The mechanisms proposed in this OGRR will allow Market Participants to change API sites without ERCOT intervention. After a Market Participant failover, the goal is to have API communications established within 15 minutes
