Error: Network Interface TD43QOZ2A3GO-U0Nic is used by existing resource /providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/TD43QOZ2A3GO-U0.e97acff9. In order to delete the network interface, it must be dissociated from the resource. To learn more, see aka.ms/deletenic.

    @Lubenz007 , please go through this similar ask answered by me. Here are the commands to delete those ghosted nics,

    Get-AzNetworkInterface | where-object { $_.VirtualMachine -eq $null } | ft name  
    Get-AzNetworkInterface | where-object { $_.VirtualMachine -eq $null } | Remove-AzNetworkInterface -Force  
    

    ----------
