VM cannot be started RRS feed

  • Question

  • This morning a lot of VMs (windows 2016in our org cannot be started. It went to "Updating", then "failed". Restart (or Stop then start) brought VM to "Updating" again, then failed a gain. 

    The error read: 

    Provisioning failed. An unexpected error occured while processing the network profile of the VM. Please retry later.. NetworkingInternalOperationError


    The VM may install the following ( I saw it for a VM that is running because of insufficient storage). 

    • 2019-10 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 for x64-based Systems (KB4519998).

    Any suggestions? This is an urgent issue for our group since most dev works are in Azure VMs.

  • Can you try redeploying the VM to see if that helps? 

    Essentially there was an error on the backend with the start operation and allocating the resources. So a redeploy might fix the issue.
