I have one instance of webrole hosted under the service which will autoscaled to 2 instances using constraint rules at particular time and specifying the duration.

After the time interval I wants to scale down again to 1 instance.

Is scale down works with Constraint rules ?

I defined rules.xml as


<rule name="default" enabled="true" rank="1" description="default constraint rule">  <actions>

<range min="1" max="1" target="AutoscalingApplicationRole">  



<rule name="peaktime" enabled="true" rank="10" description="Increase instance count at peak times">  

<timetable startTime="06:45:00" duration="00:20:00" utcOffset="+00:00"> />


<range min="2" max="5" target="AutoscalingApplicationRole"/>
