Azure Cloud Service Connecitivity "Remote Desktop can't find the computer "name.cloudapp.net". This might mean that "name.cloudapp.net" does not belong to the specified network.

Azure Cloud Service Connecitivity "Remote Desktop can't find the computer "name.cloudapp.net". This might mean that "name.cloudapp.net" does not belong to the specified network.

When you try to connect to a VM in a Cloud Service (name.cloudapp.net) it was working until I provisioned an additional 6 VM's into the same Cloud Service. I then tried to RDP to any of the other instances to see if it was a particular VM, or the Cloud Service itself.


The fix was easy login to Azure using the Preview Portal, expand the VM in question and click on the Reset Remote Desktop Settings, and click Yes to confirm. Then reboot the instance, and you should be able to RDP.
