SQL MI & Virtual cluster not getting deleted

Varun Dhingra 20 Reputation points

I'm trying to delete my SQL managed instance & virtual cluster attached to it. I've initiated the deletion process last Friday and it's Monday now but still it is showing deletion in progress. Could you please help? I'm getting charged unnecessarily for something I'm not using.

    Hi @Varun Dhingra Following our internal discussion, your issue has been successfully resolved. The problem stemmed from the temporary disabling of your subsection. After the completion of your billing cycle, your subscription was reactivated, and the virtual cluster was subsequently deleted successfully.

    Hi @Varun Dhingra

    Have you verified if there are any locks on the Managed Instance resources? Occasionally, these locks can hinder the deletion of a Managed Instance.
