Following consultation with users, the change has been scheduled for the week commencing 29th July 2019 and it is likely that Questionmark will be unavailable throughout the week. This downtime will be confirmed once a trial migration has been completed (expected by Easter).

The Questionmark Perception Terminal Server needs to taken down briefly to have security updates applied to it. This work has been scheduled for Wednesday 20 June between 8 am and 9 am, although the actual downtime will only last for about ten minutes, at around 8.30 am. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
IT Services will no longer be performing maintenance on Questionmark Perception from 9 am – 12 noon on Tuesday 11th April, so QMP will now be available during that time. The maintenance work will be rescheduled for later in the year; we will update this blog with further details when we have them.
