Description

The Disable-AzureRmVMDiskEncryption cmdlet disables encryption on an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) virtual machine. This cmdlet is only supported on Windows virtual machines and not Linux virtual machines. This cmdlet installs an extension on the virtual machine to disable encryption. If the Name parameter is not specified, an extension with the default name "AzureDiskEncryption for Windows VMs" is created. Caution: This cmdlet reboots the virtual machine.

Examples

Example 1: Disable encryption for all volumes on a Windows virtual machine

PS C:\> Disable-AzureRMVMDiskEncryption -ResourceGroupName "Group001" -VMName "VM002"

This command disables encryption for volumes of type all for the virtual machine named VM002 that belongs to the resource group named Group001. Since the VolumeType parameter is not specified, the cmdlet sets the value to All.

Example 2: Disable encryption for data volumes on a Windows virtual machine

PS C:\> $ResourceGroup = "Group002";
PS C:\> $VMName = "VM004";
PS C:\> Disable-AzureRMVMDiskEncryption -ResourceGroupName "Group002" -VMName "VM004" -VolumeType "Data"

This command disables encryption for volumes of type data for the virtual machine named VM004 that belongs to the resource group named Group002.
