How to change password for VM


  • Hello

    As of now there is no way Subscription owner to reset the password externally or outside the Azure VM. To make changed to Azure VM password you would need to have access to Azure VM. May I ask the exact error you get when you try to access to Azure VM?

    If you want to recover the Data from the Azure VM, you sure can attach that VM as data disk to other Azure VM and get the data back.

    As password loss could be a significant issue, what you can do is add a new Admin user to your Windows Azure VM just after creating the VM so in case you lost the main password you still have access to same VM using the other admin user.
