We have scheduled a maintenance for CloudAMQP instances in Azure Classic, where we will move the instances from Azure Classic to Azure ARM. It will require about 5 min downtime for all single node servers (2 and 3 node clusters are not affected).
Type: Change old instances from Azure Classic to Azure ARM
Date: Tuesday 19 September
Time: 6am-12pm UTC
For minimal disturbance, remember to always configure your clients to automatically reconnect on connection loss.
Please do a full reload (cmd-shift-r) if the management interface is not accessible after the upgrade has been completed.
If you can't allow any scheduled downtime we recommend you to move to a new dedicated cluster via queue federation, as explained here: https://www.cloudamqp.com/blog/2015-07-08-migrate-between-plans-rabbitmq-queue-federation.html

This ONLY affects servers Azure in Azure Classic (servers that were created before August 2017), i.e. servers that are still on the old underlying instance types.
