Classic VM retirement: extending retirement date to September 1st 2023

Published date: January 23, 2023

Microsoft is providing an extended migration period for your IaaS VMs from Azure Service Manager to Azure Resource Manager. Please complete the migration by 1 September 2023.
To avoid service disruption, plan and migrate your IaaS VMs from Azure Service Manager to Resource Manager 1 September 2023. There are multiple steps to this transition, so we recommend that you plan your migration promptly to avoid potential system interruption. Due to the extended period for the migration we won't provide any extension beyond 1 September 2023.
