Description

The Remove-AzVMDiskEncryptionExtension cmdlet removes the disk encryption extension and the associated extension configuration from a virtual machine. If no extension name is specified, this cmdlet removes the extension with default name AzureDiskEncryption for virtual machines that run the Windows operating system or AzureDiskEncryptionForLinux for Linux based virtual machines.

This cmdlet will fail if encryption on the virtual machine has not been first disabled. To disable encryption on a virtual machine, use Disable-AzVMDiskEncryption.

Examples

Example 1: Remove the disk encryption extension from a virtual machine.

PS C:\> Remove-AzVMDiskEncryptionExtension -ResourceGroupName "MyResourceGroup" -VMName "MyTestVM"

This command removes the extension with default name AzureDiskEncryption for a virtual machine that runs the Windows operating system or AzureDiskEncryptionForLinux for Linux based virtual machine named MyTestVM.

Example 2: Remove a specific disk encryption extension from a virtual machine.

PS C:\> Remove-AzVMDiskEncryptionExtension -ResourceGroupName "MyResourceGroup" -VMName "MyTestVM" -Name "MyDiskEncryptionExtension"

This command removes the encryption extension named MyDiskEncryptionExtension from the virtual machine named MyTestVM.
