I created a Azure VM with Windows 11 image. It was working fine. I Joined the machine to Azure AD. Since after connecting to Azure AD, the machine automatically got disconnected. Either RDP or Azure Bastion does not not. Port 3389 is open both on Network security group and in Windows Firewall too.

    There definitely seems to be something wrong.

    The only way I was able to RDP into the machine was dis-joining it from Azure AD. RDP worked perfectly after that.

    MS support and myself tried all possible ways to connect to the machine.

    1. Bastion
    2. Creating a new VM from the existing Disk.
    3. Creating a new Disk from the snapshot of existing Disk.
    4. Resetting the NIC.
    5. Attached and dettached multiple NIC's.
    6. Redeploying the machine.
    7. Resetting the RDP configuration.

    None of them worked.

    @microsoftsupport Request you to let us know if there is a known behavior here.
