Received an email "Planned maintenance for Azure will impact virtual machines in East US 2"

I performed the below per the emails instructions:

For more control over when your virtual machines will be affected, migrate your deployments using the following steps for the Azure portal or PowerShell. You must complete the migration prior to 30 October 2021 23:40 UTC.

Migrate using the Azure portal
For both Classic and Azure Resource Manager (ARM) virtual machines:

Log into the Azure portal and navigate to the virtual machines you want to migrate.
Select "Stop" to stop and deallocate the virtual machine. Please ensure the virtual machine's status has transitioned to "Stop (deallocated)".
Select "Start" only after the previous change in status has completed.

My questions is how do I verify that the server has migrated to the new network hardware?

    Unfortunately there is not a definitive way to prove you are on updating hardware without speaking with Azure Support.

    According to the Planned Maintenance FAQ doc, you will stop receiving maintenance notifications on the VM, and no longer see a "Maintenance" column in the VM view.

    Azure will always prioritize updated hosts to allocate your VM, so it is likely that your VM was placed on updated hardware.
