Due to upgrades and enhancements we are making to Windows Azure AppFabric LABS environment, scheduled for 5/12/2011, users will have NO access to the AppFabric LABS portal and services during the scheduled maintenance downtime.

When:

START: May 12, 2011, 10am PST

END: May 12, 2011, 5pm PST

Service Bus will be impacted until May 16, 2011, 10am PST

Impact Alert:

AppFabric LABS Service Bus, Access Control and Caching services, and the portal, will be unavailable during this period.
Additional impacts are described below.

Action Required:

Access to portal, Access Control and Caching will be available after the maintenance window and all existing accounts/namespaces for these services will be preserved.

However, Service Bus will not be available until May 16, 2011, 10am PST.
Furthermore, Service Bus namespaces will be preserved following the maintenance, BUT existing connection points and durable queues will not be preserved.
Users should back up Service Bus configuration in order to be able to restore following the maintenance.

Thanks for working in LABS and providing us valuable feedback.
For any questions or to provide feedback please use our Windows Azure AppFabric CTP Forum.

Once the maintenance is over we will post more details on the blog.
