Game Development Virtual Machine

When I try to create a Game Development Virtual Machine from here
and I must select Size, all I get is a list of unavailable sizes.
I believe the issue is about quotas, tha page above says "make sure you have requested quota for the desired GPU SKU before deploying the VM"
But I don't know how to request extra quota. I switched to a non-free subscription and tried to register to some service providers, but still it did not work. Furthermore:

  1. which service providers should I register to?
  2. how I can request quota for GPU SKU?

Thank you.

    Hello, @Lu !

    How do I request a quota increase for a specific VM SKU (like GPU VMs)?
    There are a couple ways to request a vCPU quota increase for a specific VM SKU. One of the easiest ways to do this is to simply click on Request quota when selecting a VM size in the portal. This will bring up a brief wizard that will allow you to submit a quota increase request for that VM family. Be sure to request enough vCPUs for the VM that you want to use (shown in the vCPU column).

    Requesting a quota increase when selecting a VM size in the portal


    Depending on your subscription type and current settings, you may be prompted to create a new support request to increase your quota:

    1. In Issue Type, select Service and subscription Limit (quotas).
    2. In Subscription, select the relevant subscription for which you would like to request access.
    3. In Quota type, select Compute-VM (core-vCPUs) subscription limit increases.
      Select Next.

    From @Lu :

    That selection caused "Get more quota now. You don’t need a support ticket to get more quota. Select Manage Quota to increase quota instantly."

    Errors similar to "Operation could not be completed as it results in exceeding approved standardNVSv3Family Cores quota."
    Keep in mind that GPU SKUs are in high demand and you may run into an error during the request. It's possible that your Azure subscription doesn’t have enough quota to deploy GPU-intensive VMs, the region doesn’t support the SKUs, or your Azure offer doesn't support GPU.

    Errors similar to "The quota is not available right now."
    This means that the quota you requested isn't currently available in the region that you requested. The quickest and easiest solution is to try a neighboring region although you can submit a support request for the region in question if you would like.

    If you're still running into issues, let me know and I'll reach out to you with some additional tips that may help!
