On March 1, 2023, customers will no longer be able to start IaaS VMs by using ASM.

What it means?

What will happen to my Azure subscription?

What will happen to the dependent resources of classic VMS which are not classic like virtual network, public ip, NIC?

If we didn't migrate the resources then what will happens to classic resources? Will it be deleted by azure?

Please help me. Thankyou in advance

    Hi @nimi Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Q&A.

    On March 1, 2023, customers will no longer be able to start IaaS VMs by using ASM.
    What it means for you?

    • As of February 28, 2020, customers who didn't utilize IaaS VMs through ASM in the month of February 2020 can no longer create VMs (classic).
    • On March 1, 2023, customers will no longer be able to start IaaS VMs by using ASM. Any that are still running or allocated will be stopped and deallocated.

    What will happen to my Azure subscription? If we didn't migrate the resources then what will happens to classic resources? Will it be deleted by azure?

    • On March 1, 2023, subscriptions that are not migrated to Azure Resource Manager will be informed regarding timelines for deleting any remaining VMs (classic).

    What will happen to the dependent resources of classic VMs which are not classic like virtual network, public IP, NIC?

    This retirement does not affect the following Azure services and functionality:

    • Storage accounts not used by VMs (classic)
    • Virtual networks not used by VMs (classic)
    • Other classic resources

    This document contains all the information you need regarding Migrating your IaaS resources to Azure Resource Manager by March 1, 2023

    We recommend to migrate to ARM as soon as possible to avoid any service disruptions.
    See What help/resources are available for this migration?
