How to prevent VMs from changing host server?

Hi.

I like to know how I can prevent my VMs from changing host server (physical server) whenever I shutdown and turning it back on? I do shutdown whenever I'm not using the vms.

I'm getting "hardware changes detected" error from a license dongle. So, I assumed that the host server/physical server that hosted the vms will change sometimes if I shutdown the VMs.

Quote from Microsoft:
"Because some host server faults can be specific to that server, a repeated VM reboot situation might be improved by manually redeploying the VM to another host server. This operation can be triggered by using the redeploy option on the details page of the VM, or by stopping and restarting the VM in the Azure portal."

Is the license (of the dongle) attached to network such as MAC address / IP address?

My idea to realize your requirement is Azure Dedicated host. You can deploy a Virtual Machine on your dedicated host with this service.

The price of this service is as follows. I think that this service may be expensive for you.

Best regards.
