Bug: Failed to delete the virtual machine.
I had two VMs in a Cloud Service named DC1 and DC2
I deleted DC1 and then tried to delete DC2, each time checking the "Disks" box for items to also delete.
DC1 deleted successfully, and DC2 errored with this message:
Failed to delete the virtual machine.
That's it. I guessed it's because DC2 was the last VM in the Cloud Service.
The second time I tried to delete the VM, I noticed the Cloud Service was also selectable in the "other items to delete" check boxes.
This time the delete was successful, and I had a second notice for deleting the "Domain Name" which I guess is the new term for Cloud Service?
As an aside, I think the "Domain Name" terminology is a mistake.
Clearly, I was not deleting my "domain name" - Azure isn't my domain registrar.
While a Cloud Service and a domain name are certainly tightly coupled services, they aren't the same thing and shouldn't be named the same way.
This makes Azure look bad, needlessly, by creating irritation with technical experts when they try to talk about your service offerings.
Thanks for reaching out. We’ll look into this.
