Azure MySQL flexible server stuck on stopping

Josh Ondayko 6 Reputation points

Hey everyone,

How long does it normally take for an Azure database for MySQL flexible server to restart? In particular, I clicked restart and it seems to sit forever in stopping. It's been around an hour since I clicked restart and I find this a little out there in terms of timing.

All I am doing is clicking restart via the CLI, there is no replication happening + I don't understand what would make it take so long. Any ideas?

    @Josh Ondayko avatar imageJoshOndayko-0323 Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Q&A.

    My understanding is that stopping a flexible server on Azure MySQL Database is taking longer than expected. Please let me know if my understanding is not correct.
    I was able to test this from my end and I was able to start and stop MySQL flexible server without any issues. The location I am using is East US. Could you please try again later and let us know if the error occurs again? As an alternative you can also use CLI code to stop the server.

    If this still occur, then the best route will be to create a support ticket so we can further investigate at the back end.
