Two virtual machines in one cloud service, when one starts, the other stops RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a simple virtual network and cloud service with two virtual machines in. They were both running fine after creation and I shut them down a couple of days ago. Today when I try to start them both one always gets stuck at "Starting". If I use powershell to stop that one and start it again, the other one (which was running fine) then goes to "Starting".

    If I stop them both, the second one to start always sticks at "Starting".

    What is going on?

  • Without making any changes both started today so I'm going to put it down to the outage, thanks a lot for the reply - I was pulling my hair out!
