I am migrating our SQL Server (Web 2017) instance our of our Azure VM (Windows Server 2019) into Azure SQL. After this I obviously do not want to be paying for SQL Server on the VM any more.
The VM also acts as a web server so I would prefer not to have to set up a new VM to replace it. Removing SQL Server would be the ideal solution. Uninstalling isn't an issue; but I do not know how to tell Azure not to bill us for it any more!
I know that when you add SQL Server to an existing VM you need to register it with the SQL Server VM Resource Provider, so I presume it is just a case of de-registering it, but I haven't had any luck finding any documentation on the topic.
