Azure Network Manager is not deleted.

윤영신 21 Reputation points

Provider 'Microsoft.Network' did not return valid location header to track the status of long running operation.

This is an error message from the Azure activity log.
I can't delete the network manager and it keeps charging.

    Hello @윤영신 ,

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

    I understand that you are unable to delete Azure Network manager and getting the following error "Provider 'Microsoft.Network' did not return valid location header to track the status of long running operation".

    I checked internally and found that this was a known issue and the backend team rolled out a fix for this issue last week.
    Could you please confirm if the Azure Network manager deletion is still pending for you?

    If yes, could you please try the below Azure CLI commands to delete the resource:

    1) Use "az resource delete" command with the resource ID of your Azure Network manager with a "--verbose" parameter as below:
    az resource delete --api-version 2019-11-01 --ids/subscriptions/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/resourceGroups/rg-name/providers/Microsoft.Network/networkManagers/anm-name --verbose
    Refer :

    2) Use "az network manager delete" command to delete the Azure Network manager:
    az network manager delete --name "NetworkManagerName" --resource-group "rg-name"
    Refer :

    If the Azure Network manager doesn't get deleted after executing the above commands, we may need to open a support request to get it removed from the backend. So if you have a support plan, I request you file a support ticket, else please do let us know, we will try and help you get a one-time free technical support.

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

    Please "Accept the answer" if the information helped you. This will help us and others in the community as well.

    Hello @Bibhas Kumar Senapati

    Thanks for your post!

    I would like to give my 2 cents here....

    Based on the description given, I can say that you may check your resource provider settings at the Subscription level.

    Then, you can review the status of Microsoft.Network feature or register it if it is not fully enabled.
