  • Hello Khamaruddin,

    Automation account can manage resources across all regions and subscription for a given tenant. This could be due to permissions on the run-as account on the subscription where the VM is moved now.

    Please check similar issue resolution on this thread. Check this blog once for more information.

    Just wanted to check if the Automation account can be moved to new subscription, please follow this document.
