Blackboard maintenance, Friday April 27th, 1 am – 7 am

On Friday, April 27th, 2018, Blackboard will be performing scheduled infrastructure maintenance at their data centre. The six-hour window is for the entire maintenance work to complete; however, the total outage duration is not expected to exceed 30 minutes and will be near the beginning of the maintenance period.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

QMP service “at risk”, Thursday 12 April, 8 am – noon

IT Services will be moving the secondary Questionmark Perception server to an improved installation on Thursday 12 April, between 8 am and noon. This means that the service will be relying on the primary server for that time, and hence it is to be regarded as an “at risk” period. We do not expect this process to have a significant effect on the service, although there may be a few brief outages.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact digital-education@bristol.ac.uk.
