    Hello,

    Is this a cloud service that you have deployed using Visual Studio? If so you need to change the configuration to a different size then redeploy.

    Change this in your cloud config:

    <WebRole name="WebRole1" vmsize="Medium">
    …
    </WebRole>

    Presently you cannot change instance size for Cloud service (apart from VM Role) through Azure Management portal.

    yes, if you delete the deployments and then re-create deployments, then Cloud Serivces Public IP changes. But if you upgrade the deployment, then IP doesnt changes.

    Thanks,

    Thanks.. That is correct, it is a cloud service deployed using Visual Studio. Would redeploying produce a different IP? There are apps pointing to this service through the public IP.

    You will not be able to update the running instance of auzre. To change in the instace size you need to modify your package 'ServiceDefinition.csdef' setting as following

    <ServiceDefinition name="GameConfig" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ServiceHosting/2008/10/ServiceDefinition" schemaVersion="2012-10.1.8">
      <WorkerRole name="WorkerGame" vmsize="Medium">
      ........
      </WorkerRole>
    </ServiceDefinition>
