Hi Team,

I have recently created Azure free trial account but was surprised to see that when I try to create a new virtual machine instance not all Azure Regions are presented in the dropdown menu. For example, in the US only East US, East US 2 and West US 3 are presented while I need US Central region. Is there a way to create a VM in other regions or it is not possible with my subscription plan?

    Hi @Irakli

    Unfortunately, the Central US region is in high demand and may be unavailable due to capacity constraints.

    In your case, I suggest reaching out to the Azure Subscription Management Team for region enablement by submitting a support request

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-portal/supportability/how-to-create-azure-support-request

    Get in touch if you need more help with this issue.

    Hi there,

    I assume you have no Azure policies which restrict regions? Otherwise, I would go to your subscription, and then "Usage & Quotas", here you can filter to region and see what quotas you have on your account. It is possible to raise a capacity request in this portal (by clicking "request increase" on the right), however there may be restrictions as you have a free trial and also there could be capacity issues in the region you are after.

    Try this, otherwise I would try another region closest which has sufficient capacity

    Hope this helps
