Disable trusted launch Azure VM

Vlad Dodin 21 Reputation points

Hello Everyone,

I have an issue with one of my VM's on Azure.

This machine was previously created with Trusted Launch enabled on it(Don't know why).

Now, I can't backup it up with my default backup policy, only with enhanced one which is I'm not interested in.

I've unmarked this options under the configuration of the VM:


The Azure still shows me that the machine is on Trusted Launch, how do I changed that?

P.S I have rebooted this machine after every change that I've made.

    @Vlad Dodin

    Once a VM is created with Trusted Launch, Trusted Launch cannot be disabled. Only the associated capabilities such as vTPM and Secure Boot can be disabled individually. You will need to recreate the VM with Trusted Launch disabled.

    @deherman-MSFT is this something that will be able to be updated in the future rather than having to re-create the VM?
