Update: Tuesday, 20 February 2018 11:43 UTC

We continue to investigate issues within Azure Log Analytics service. We have identified an issue with latest monitoring agent upgrade which is causing our system to not process the data as expected. Customers using Microsoft
Monitoring Agent (MMA) extension to connect Azure Virtual Machines (VMs) to Log
Analytics who may experience the MMA extension stuck in error or transitioning
state in either the Azure Portal or the OMS Portal. On-premises VMs
which have the MMA extension installed are not impacted.
 The initial findings indicate that the problem began at 02/15 19:30 UTC. We currently have no estimate for resolution. 
  • Work Around: Rebooting the impacted VM will help in mitigating the issue
  • Next Update: Before 02/21 00:00 UTC
