After I upgraded the size configuration of my 2012 VM Server, a mandatory reboot took place. Upon attempting to login, this error occurs both from the my network and directly from the Azure Portal:
An authentication error has occured. The local security authority cannot be contacted. Remote computer: 'servername'. This could be due to an expired password. Please update your password if it has expired.
I can ping the the server and see it on the network. Because it is in Azure, I cannot login locally. From the Azure portal toolset, I am unable to reset the RDP configuration, nor can I change the Admin password. When attempting to use the Azure tools to do this, it simply states it failed with no other details. I even changed the configuration size back to what it was, but issue persists.
Any help or insight to this issue would be greatly appreciated.
