Hi Cobatch,


You should first retry to terminate the cluster. We sometimes see Azure that fail the termination but where it succeeds on a second attempt.


If that doesn't work, we can dig deeper.

Hi Philip, tried to terminate it multiple times without any luck. Please advise. Thanks.

Ok. Then please send me a private message with the CRN of the cluster. It's shown the cluster details.
