After you retain a classic network endpoint, you can extend its retention period by changing its expiration date in the ApsaraDB for Redis console.


A classic network endpoint is retained after an ApsaraDB for Redis instance switches the network type from classic network to virtual private cloud (VPC). For more information, see Change the network type from classic network to VPC.


During the period in which your instance can be connected over the classic network or a VPC, you can specify an expiration date for the classic network endpoint based on your business requirements. The new expiration date immediately takes effect. For example, if the classic network endpoint is due to expire on August 18, 2017 and you modify the expiration date to 14 days later on August 15, 2017, the classic network endpoint is released on August 29, 2017.

Note You can modify the expiration date multiple times.


  1. Log on to the ApsaraDB for Redis console and go to the Instances page. In the top navigation bar, select the region in which the instance is deployed. Then, find the instance and click the instance ID.
  2. On the right side of the Connection Information section, click Change Expiration Date next to Retained Connection Address of the Classic Network.
  3. In the panel that appears, set a new expiration date and click OK.
