Windows Azure VM: “The operation cannot be performed because the virtual machine is faulted.”

Sempat kaget waktu saya lihat alert di hape yang menyatakan bahwa server Juwall.com & elhashif.net down. Seketika langsung saya buka management portal-nya Windows Azure dan mendapati ketiga VM saya berstatus STOPPED.

“Lho, kok tiba-tiba stopped?”

Ketika saya coba starting VM, ada error:

The operation cannot be performed because the virtual machine is faulted. The long running operation tracking ID was: 06b0c380ff9148bc94d49c26994cc30b

vm-azure-faulted

Setelah searching kesana-kemari, akhirnya saya menemukan tulisan di blog MSDN:

We have one known issue that may cause this behavior and our internal teams are working very hard to get to the fix deployed to resolve the issue. Until then, you may resize the virtual machine to workaround the issue quickly. If the issue persists after resizing, you may open a new forum thread using the forum link(s) provided under “Production workloads and support during Windows Azure Virtual Machines “Preview”” section.

Aku coba resize. Dan benar, VMnya bisa nyala lagi. Saya kembalikan ke size semula juga masih jalan.

Masih bertanya-tanya, tapi masih malas menghubungi supportnya.

Sekian aja, semoga bermanfaat 🙂
