    We need to have Console access for Virtual machine in Azure just in case to troubleshoot if the VM is not accessible via RDP. In some scenarios Serial console access also wont work as expected and web console would provide us more flexibility for troubleshooting

    Can't believe it's 2019 and still can't do this. Powershell is not ideal especially for those who've been administering Windows server for past 20 years. Give us both options like any modern hypervisor solution does.

    You can use the 'Serial Console' on the Azure VM in question, to log into a PowerShell Session for that CM to Add a user back into a remote desktop group.
