    @karthikeyan

    The error message "curl: (52) Empty reply from server" indicates that the server did not send a response back to the client. This could be due to a network issue or a problem with the server.

    Regarding your command, it seems that you are trying to start or stop a VM scaleset using a REST API call with a bearer token. However, it is not clear from the information you provided what could be causing the error.

    I suggest you check the following:

    • Make sure that the subscription ID, resource group name, VM scaleset name, and API version are correct.
    • Verify that the bearer token is valid and has the necessary permissions to start or stop the VM scaleset.
    • Check if there are any network issues that could be causing the problem.

    You can also refer to the following document for more information that might be helpful: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/managed-identities-azure-resources/qs-configure-rest-vmss
