Can't connect to windows instance using RDP.

0 votes
I have created a Windows VM instance and while trying to connect it using RDP, it fails. I have tried checking all possible issues. I have checked the OS configuration, the machine is online, the password is set, firewall rules are enabled, and almost all the possible things. What do I do?

If the other troubleshooting steps do not resolve your connection issue, you might be able to delete the existing instance and preserve your persistent disk

Remount the disk to a new instance and make another troubleshooting attempt, or simply recover existing data from the disk.
