StorSimple 8000 series available only in the Azure portal from October 2017
Posted on Monday, September 25, 2017
In July 2017, we announced the general availability of the Microsoft Azure StorSimple 8000 series in the new Azure portal. Beginning October 2017, you need to use the new Azure portal to manage your StorSimple 8000 series devices. The Azure classic portal is no longer supported.
- Starting October 5, 2017, your classic StorSimple device managers will automatically move to the new Azure portal. This is a phased rollout, and we will update you about the move via email and portal notifications. For more information about the move, see Move your service to Azure portal.
- The new Azure portal supports devices running Update 3.0 or later. If your device is not up to date, we strongly recommend that you apply Update 5 as soon as possible. For more information, see Install Update 5 on your StorSimple device.
- The existing Azure Service Management (ASM) PowerShell cmdlets are not supported after the transition to the new portal. Update the scripts to manage your devices through the Azure Resource Manager SDK. For more information, see the script samples that use the Resource Manager SDK.
