Create Virtual Machine(VM) in Azure throws “Long running operation failed with status ‘Failed’.” through PowerShell

I was following the article SharePoint Server 2016 dev/test environment in Azure to create a SharePoint Server 2016 environment in Azure.

I reached the step to create the Virtual Machine that will be used as the domain controller using the cmdlet below

New-AzureRMVM -ResourceGroupName $rgName -Location $locName -VM $vm

After waiting for several minutes I decided to cancel the operation. When I retried the same cmdlet, I got the following error.

New-AzureRMVM -ResourceGroupName $rgName -Location $locName -VM $vm -Verbose
VERBOSE: Performing the operation "New" on target "adVM".
New-AzureRMVM : Long running operation failed with status 'Failed'.
ErrorCode: VMAgentStatusCommunicationError
ErrorMessage: VM 'adVM' has not reported status for VM agent or extensions. 
Please verify the VM has a running VM agent, and can establish 
outbound connections to Azure storage.
StartTime: 18/11/2016 15:42:46
EndTime: 18/11/2016 15:42:46
OperationID: f1ecb302-9da9-4a76-9b0c-463b5e89c41c
Status: Failed
At line:1 char:1
+ New-AzureRMVM -ResourceGroupName $rgName -Location $locName -VM $vm -Verbose
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 + CategoryInfo : CloseError: (:) [New-AzureRmVM], ComputeCloudException
 + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.Azure.Commands.Compute.NewAzureVMCommand

I spent a while trying to understand what the error message meant. In that scenerio the error message was thrown because the VM requested was created successfully even though I interrupted the operation before. The error thrown was to prevent creating another VM with the same details.

When I created the second VM, I waited long enough till the success message was displayed.
