    To increase the quota, you can submit a request through the Azure portal:

    1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
    2. In the left menu, click on "Help + support".
    3. Click on "New support request".
    4. Select the "Issue type" as "Quota".
    5. Fill in the required information, including the subscription, the resource type, and the new quota limit you're requesting. Once your request has been reviewed and approved, the quota will be increased, and you can proceed with creating the resources using the custom template. Regarding reverting the quota increase, it's important to note that quotas are in place to ensure fair usage of resources across all Azure customers. If you find that you no longer need the increased quota, you can submit another support request to decrease the quota back to the original limit. However, it's not mandatory to revert the quota, and you can keep it as long as you don't exceed the allowed limits for your subscription.

    Hello @sns ,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Microsoft Q&A platform.

    Error Details: Operation could not be completed as it results in exceeding the approved Total Regional Cores quota. Additional details -
    Deployment Model: Resource Manager, Location: eastus, Current Limit: 10, Current Usage: 0, Additional Required: 14,(Minimum) New Limit Required: 14.

    The error indicates that the vCPU cores quota in your subscription has a limit of 10 currently and the deployment you are doing needs a total of 14 vCPU cores in the eastus region of azure. For this as suggested in the previous response, you need to raise a quota increase request. To do so, navigate to azure portal, under subscriptions blade, you need to select Usage +Quotas.

    Note: Free Trial subscriptions aren't eligible for limit or quota increases. If you have a Free Trial subscription, you can upgrade to a Pay-As-You-Go subscription. For more information, see Upgrade your Azure Free Trial subscription to a Pay-As-You-Go subscription and the Free Trial subscription FAQ.
