Update about licence charge when the Virtual Machine size is decreased
I have deployed a DS13_V2 Standard Virtual Machine (Window Server 2016 Datacenter SQL Server 2016 Enterprise) for some testing.
Later I changed the size of VM to Standard_B1 and kept in Running with an expectation that the VM will just cost me AUD 9.21.
The VM actually cost me AUD 9.21 but I incurred a licence fee AUD 1382. There was no message when I resize the VM. At least, Microsoft should have updated me that licence will be charged extra as I had a feeling that VM cost includes the licence cost.
@Microsoft: At least, update the user that there are licence fees apart from the VM cost when you moved to the lower tiers as for me it seems like the hidden cost of Microsoft. Refer to ticket 117110116588336 for more details.
