Hello @BALAKRISHNAA-6881 ,

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & hope you are doing well.

For Windows clients, you must have administrator rights on the client device in order to initiate the VPN connection from the client device to Azure.
Please refer: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/vpn-gateway/point-to-site-about#what-are-the-client-configuration-requirements

Azure P2S VPN without local admin rights on Windows client is not supported at the moment as this is a constraint on the Windows platform. It’s not possible to change from Azure P2S VPNs.
Please refer : https://feedback.azure.com/forums/217313-networking/suggestions/11391801-p2s-vpn-client-without-local-admin-rights
Hence, the manually created VPN profile may not work.

In case you are facing issues installing the VPN client in admin login, you can refer the below article which has all troubleshooting scenarios for Azure P2S VPN:

Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
