Virtual Machine onboarding problem to vulnerability assessment

Why am i getting virtual machines onboarding problems, in azure virtual machines. The exact error says "The machines doesn't have data from microsoft threat and vulnerability management, Make sure it’s properly onboarded to Microsoft Defender for Endpoint."

The things that i have already done are
1) taken defender plan 1 .
2) enabled "autoprovisioning" for "log analytics agent in azure vms" and "vulnerability assessment for machines".

@spradhan-8016,
Thank you for reaching out to the Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to answer your question.

You might receive such an error if you don't have the MDE extension installed on the virtual machine. The MDE extension only gets installed on the below link. Also, kindly validate if you have met all the Prerequisites mentioned in the article.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/defender-for-cloud/integration-defender-for-endpoint?tabs=linux#whats-this-mdewindows--mdelinux-extension-running-on-my-machine


For 2012 R2 and 2016 servers you can refer to the following document:

If the provided solution doesn't work, please let me know. I am happy to assist you further. Thanks.
