AZURE - VM start error - "The server encountered an internal error"

When attempting to start AZURE VM's error "The server encountered an internal error" is returned.

The VM's were shutdown last-night via a PowerShell  automation script, the same automation script should start them up in the morning  (has worked ok for 12 months).

Other VM start OK.

Attempting to start with PowerShell tart-AzureVM  returns ->

Start-AzureVM : InternalError : The server encountered an internal error. Please retry the request.
