"SkuNotAvailable" while creating and starting the Azure Databricks Cluster

Prasanna Bandi 0 Reputation points


I have a Azure Free Trial Subscription. Created Databricks Workspace and tried creating a Cluster in Databrick with following configuration.

Single Node and Single user with 14.3 GB & 4 Cores with 10.4LTS Spark 3.2.1 and Scala 2.12.

After creating the Cluster and tried starting the Cluster, it is taking forever and failed with error "SkuNotAvailable".

Can Someone help me with this issue and get the Cluster started. Thank you.

    @Prasanna Bandi - Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    By default, for any subscription there will be specific limit on the VM cores available per region based on the OfferType. Certain Azure regions require customers to go through a request process in order to gain access. To request access to these regions, a customer or their Cloud Solution Provider may open a support request and work with our Support team to discuss or enable access.

    Note: If a SKU isn't available for your subscription in a location or zone that meets your business needs, submit a SKU request to Azure Support (Which is complete at free cost) or try to check the SKU available in you subscription and try to utilize the same to create.

    For more details, refer to Resolve errors for SKU not available.

    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you any further queries.

    The issue is related to your subscription type. You are using free Azure Visual Studio (formerly MSDN) benefit, and it has access to a limited set of regions/services. 

    You can check out this site for more information: Azure Offers by Region | Microsoft Azure. Suggest you use an allowed region instead.

    If that will not meet your needs, you can visit the Azure home page Cloud Computing Services | Microsoft Azure to explore expanded access through a paid subscription.
