The AzureLogCollector extension cannot be deleted?


Recently I got a interesting case when I want to collect log files from a Azure Cloud Service. As you know, I use Set-AzureServiceExtension Cmdlet to enable AzureLogCollector retrieve diagnostics log files from VM instance. For details you can visit:

And then I want to disable AzureLogCollector extension after I had got log files from Azure Storage. Unfortunatly, It seems I cannot disable this extension. PowerShell like this:

# First time, I list all service extension in specified Cloud Service
PS > Get-AzureServiceExtension -ServiceName "devopssample" -Slot Staging

Role : DevOpsWebSite
Extension : AzureLogCollector
ProviderNameSpace : Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Compute
Version : 1.0
Id : Default-AzureLogCollector-Staging-Ext-0
PublicConfiguration : {
"Instances": "*",
"Mode": "Full",
"SasUri": "################################"
}
OperationDescription : Get-AzureServiceExtension
OperationId : b7c4c5e1-4f90-b07c-9524-97e74d1a06d5
OperationStatus : Succeeded

#Now I am going to remove AzureLogCollector by Remove-AzureServiceExtension. And it seems succeed.
PS > Remove-AzureServiceExtension -ServiceName "DevOpsSample" -Role "DevOpsWebSite" -Slot Staging -ProviderNamespace "Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Compute" -ExtensionName "AzureLogCollector"
Warning: Removing AzureLogCollector configuration for DevOpsWebSite from Cloud Service DevOpsSample.

OperationDescription OperationId OperationStatus

#After Remove extension succeed. The extension still working.
PS > Get-AzureServiceExtension -ServiceName "devopssample" -Slot Staging

Role : DevOpsWebSite
Extension : AzureLogCollector
ProviderNameSpace : Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Compute
Version : 1.0
Id : Default-AzureLogCollector-Staging-Ext-0

}
OperationDescription : Get-AzureServiceExtension

Does any guy know why?
