Hello Levi,

Thanks for posting here.

You can follow the steps mentioned in the below link to reset the password:

https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/using-vmaccess-extension-to-reset-login-credentials-for-linux-vm/

If the problem still exists, please redeploy the VM with the instructions from the below link:

https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/virtual-machines-windows-redeploy-to-new-node/

While the VM is redeployed, the temporary disk will be lost and dynamic IP addresses associated with virtual network interface will be updated.
