      Hello Folks,

      i Have a request to remove Azure MMA Agent(linux and win) from Azure vms as long as the Workspace is similar to default*: i am able to remove for all workspaces with the below script: but i cant seem to target just the default workspace : i must be missing something small here

      $subscriptions = Get-AzureRMSubscription
      #loop subs
      ForEach ($sub in $subscriptions) {
          select-azureRMsubscription -subscriptionName $
          Write-Host “Working on Subscription“ $
          #loop rgs
          $RGs = Get-AzureRMResourceGroup
          foreach ($RG in $RGs) {
              $VMs = Get-AzureRmVM -ResourceGroupName $RG.ResourceGroupName
              foreach ($VM in $VMs) {
                  $OSType = $VM.StorageProfile.OsDisk.OsType
                  $wksps = (Get-AzureRmOperationalInsightsWorkspace)
                  foreach ($wksp in $wksps -and $wksp.Name -like "default*") {
                      if ($OSType -eq "windows" -or $OSType -eq "Linux") {
                          remove-AzureRmVMExtension -ResourceGroupName $RG.resourcegroupname -VMName $ -Name 'MicrosoftMonitoringAgent' -Force
                          remove-AzureRmVMExtension -ResourceGroupName $RG.resourcegroupname -VMName $ -Name 'OmsAgentForLinux' -Force
                      else {
                          write-host "Log Name is Not Matching default name"

      Is there a specific reason you combined a filter in the Foreach loop? Have you tried removing -and $wksp.Name -like “Default*” and confirm if “Default” shows up in the $wksp variable? I would almost recommend this alternative. The 1 is used to ignore case sensitivity.

      ForEach ($wksp.Name.StartsWith('default',1) in $wksps){
