Not able to run connection troubleshoot tests

While exploring Azure Virtual Networks, I tried to delete NetworkWatcherRG resource group. The deletion was not successful as it seems. After that I am not able to run any connectivity tests.

The error seems to be with the process of deletion of NetworkWatcherRG. Here is the raw format of the error provided by Azure.

{
  "message": "Cannot deploy to resource group NetworkWatcherRG: deleting.",
  "name": "Error",
  "stack": "Error: Cannot deploy to resource group NetworkWatcherRG: deleting.\n    at https://portal.azure.com/Content/Dynamic/KqF9_ozsrMOn.js:2:14004\n    at s (https://portal.azure.com/Content/Dynamic/fcfeK376smSa.js:17:2614)\n    at Object.next (https://portal.azure.com/Content/Dynamic/fcfeK376smSa.js:17:1907)\n    at o (https://portal.azure.com/Content/Dynamic/fcfeK376smSa.js:17:1680)",

Hello @AnindyaDas-0321 ,

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

The error you have posted says that the NetworkWatcherRG resource group is stuck at deleting. So I would request you to try the below provided steps to delete the resource group completely:

  • Open a web browser and navigate to https://resources.azure.com

  • Log-in to the appropriate Azure account.

  • In the blade on the left side of the browser, expand subscriptions, then expand the desired subscription name.

  • In the blade on the left side of the browser, expand resource groups.

  • Under resource groups, click on the Resource Group "NetworkWatcherRG".

  • Near the top of the content window of the browser, select the Read/Write push button

  • Select the Actions(POST, DELETE) tab on the NetworkWatcherRG resource group within the resource explorer and click on Delete. It should give a green tick if succeded and red exclamation with the error message at the bottom of the page, in case it fails.

  • Confirm if the resource group is deleted. (It will take some time to delete, so please wait for at least 15 mins).

Once you confirm that it is deleted, you can enable Network watcher for all the regions where you have Vnets deployed via Azure portal following the below article:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/network-watcher/network-watcher-create#create-a-network-watcher-in-the-portal

After you have enabled all the Vnet regions in your Network Watcher, you can check if the connectivity tests are working.

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