locked
machine is gone RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had a working ubuntu machine and I upgraded it to better hardware. Then I got the famous

    "Failed to restart virtual machine gitmoon. The virtual machine cannot restart. The current virtual machine state is RoleStateUnknown."

    I followed the instructions from this thread and deleted the machine, in order to redeploy the disk on another machine. The only problem is that the disk does not appear anywhere in the Storage tab. So currently this machine is gone :( 

    I would appreciate any help on this.

  • Hello Yaron,

    Welcome to the forums.

    Removing the VM does not remove the VHD from your storage account. Did you check Virtual Machines, Disks, and click Create Disk, and browse to the VHD, does it appear there?

    Thanks!

    I was looking at the storage account but not on disks.
