Status Codes for Windows Azure SQL Database Accounts
Updated: December 6, 2013
The status of your Windows Azure SQL Database subscription is displayed on the Windows Azure Platform Management Portal. The status codes and the actions you should take are described in this topic.
Your subscription is ready to use.
To continue using the service, take action related to the payment of your subscription.
To view your billing history, sign in to the Microsoft Online Services Customer Portal using your Windows Live ID. Then, on the Home page, in the Actions pane, click View my bills.
Your subscription is disabled. The following applies to your SQL Database account until you pay for a subscription to continue using the service:
You cannot create or drop a SQL Database server. However, you can view the existing ones.
You can view SQL Database firewall rules but cannot add, update, or delete a firewall rule.
You cannot modify the server administrator password for your SQL Database server.
On attempting to connect to a user database in your SQL Database server, an error appears indicating that you have reached the limit for the billing month.
You cannot create, modify (such as changing the edition of your database), or delete databases in your SQL Database server.
You cannot read from or write to the user databases. However, you can read data from the master database.
You cannot execute any stored procedures or any other actions that can write data to the master database.
To pay for your subscription to continue using the service, go to the Microsoft Online Services Customer Portal. If you do not want to pay or renew your subscription, remove your data or save it to some other place because the account will be deleted.
|If you are a new customer, and your usage exhausts the monthly amounts included in your offer, your SQL Database account is disabled and the same conditions as mentioned earlier apply.
