    Hi Botho,

    Please have a look at the following documentation:

    Troubleshoot Start/Stop VMs during off-hours issues

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/automation/troubleshoot/start-stop-vm

    Scenario: All VMs fail to start or stop

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/automation/troubleshoot/start-stop-vm#all-vms-fail-to-startstop

    Scenario: Some of my VMs fail to start or stop

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/automation/troubleshoot/start-stop-vm#some-vms-fail-to-startstop

    Hope some of the scenarios in the documentation help. I'd also recommend taking a look at your Azure activity log to see what the exact error is:
