Unable to delete Azure VM

Hi All,

I'm trying to delete a VM in Azure.


However, I get an error message.


Is it related to attached disks?
Please advise how to resolved it.

    Hello @Cloud_Geek_82 ,
    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft QnA.
    Looking at the error, it seems like you will be able to delete the VM if you uncheck the data disks first. This looks to be related with the disks. Can you please try and let me know if that works?

    Thanks guys.
    I was able to delete the VM with detached data disks first.
    Then deleted data disks.
