Deploying a VM from the Insufficient quota - family limit size type

Bradley Smith 20 Reputation points

Hi, I am trying to deploy a VM with a GPU in Azure. I applied a filter to filter by type "GPU" - the N series was too expensive, but under the section "Insufficient quota - family limit", I saw one that was reasonable with a GPU.

I clicked on Request quota and increased it by 1. After a short period, I was informed that the request was successful.

How do I now use my quota of 1 to build my single VM?

I know how to build a VM in Azure. My point is the VM size type I requested the quota uplift on doesn't seem to be an option for me to select. It is still listed under the "Insufficient quota - family limit" section.

When I select the request quota option again, it says that my usage is 0 of 1 and prompts me to submit for a quota increase.

I want to build a test VM using the size type I requested the quota for. i.e I requested 1 and now want to build 1 VM using this size type. I hope that makes sense.

How do I do it so I can use my quota?

    If the quota request has been fulfilled then you should have the option to create that VM with the specified SKU size. Can you double check that the region you requested matches the region where you are trying to create the VM, but also the number of vcores you requested is within the VM size you are choosing.

    Other than that, if you have just had this approved, it could be a case of waiting a bit longer, log back in again and try the above which I mentioned.

    I would log a support ticket if it still doesnt show after that - or choose a VM SKU in a different region as GPU VMs are in high demand and some regions do not have the capacity

    Maybe you asked to increse the quote to 1 vCPU, take a look if the machine that you are trying to deploy requires more vCPU,, so you need to ask to increse for the number of vCPUs that you need.
