Amazon RDS on VMware enhances custom AZ status to include a new state: Disconnected.

The new disconnected status indicates that the connection between the AWS region and a custom AZ is disrupted. The AWS Management console displays “Disconnected” in the “Status” column if the environment experiences a disruption. If a custom AZ is in disconnected, RDS API requests from this custom AZ are rejected. 

RDS on VMware disconnected state is available to all RDS on VMware customers. Please refer to the RDS on VMware User Guide for more details.
