Hello,

I am assigned as owner of a windows virtual machine and a resource group which this VM belong to, under my colleagues's subscription.
No issue with operating the virtual machine, however when I need to encrypt the VM in https, following this tutorial:
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/encrypt-disks
Running command: Get-AzVM -ResourceGroupName, it returns error as below. Using az group exists -n Resourcegroupname, it returns true though. How can I get access this resource group and finish the encryption? Thanks in advance for your help!

    If you have multiple subscriptions, set your subscription first and then try running the command.

    To list all subscriptions : az account list --o table

    To set your subscription : az account set --subscription <subscription-id>

    Also ensure that all resources (including the Key Vault, Storage account, and VM) are in the same Azure region and subscription.

    Hello,
    Please check if the resource group you are looking for is existing in the subscription. Use the following command

    Get-AzResourceGroup
    

    Next check is, verify the Power Shell version you use. Make sure that you are using x86 version of PowerShell

    Regards,
