End of life for legacy Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Commercial subscriptions renewals
What is happening on the Microsoft side?
Starting Monday, July 11, 2022, all legacy CSP Commercial subscriptions that reach their term end date after July 10, 2022, will not renew.
Microsoft will not notify the partner or the end-customer when a legacy subscription approaches or reach its term.
Legacy CSP subscriptions for education, government, and non-profit will still be available for purchase and renewal.
