Hello Everyone,

I am trying to delete an existing item in my azure recovery vault.

I am trying to delete it from the protected server option under Backup Infrastructure Pane.

I have disabled the soft delete feature and its been more than 15 days.

    When deleting a virtual machine, Azure requires you to provide the exact name of the virtual machine, that means all letters and characters of the VM name must be written.

    In your case your VM name is: AZUREVM. so you are missing the "dot".

    Best regards,
