Restart Azure Database for MariaDB server using Azure portal

This topic describes how you can restart an Azure Database for MariaDB server. You may need to restart your server for maintenance reasons, which causes a short outage as the server performs the operation.

The server restart will be blocked if the service is busy. For example, the service may be processing a previously requested operation such as scaling vCores.

The time required to complete a restart depends on the MariaDB recovery process. To decrease the restart time, we recommend you minimize the amount of activity occurring on the server prior to the restart.
