Unable to delete Azure VM due to NetworkingInternalOperationError

Thomas S 1 Reputation point

Hi community,
I try to delete a VM resource from az portal and get the following error:

An unexpected error occurred while processing the network profile of the VM. Please retry later. (Code: NetworkingInternalOperationError).

I tried multiple ways to delete like Azure CLI or from resources group, all of which failed.

For the other operation I run, I got the Error:

Operation is not allowed since the VM is marked for deletion. You can only retry the Delete operation (or wait for an ongoing one to complete).

But waiting is going to be too long to cancel, like infinity. How can I delete my VM?

    If you have waited a few hours and it is still not deleted then you will need to raise a support request.
