Why am I limited to what VM size is available to me on my new pay-as-you-go Azure subscription?

I created a new Azure pay-as-you-go subscription using my credit card last week and today I went to create a new Vm and many of the VM sizes are unavailable to me (ie. sizes 'A', 'B', 'D', 'E') None of these VM sizes are available to me. They all have 'Request quota' next to them, and I do not understand why. I want to create these VMs in the South Central US region. What do I need to do to make these VM sizes available?

    Hello Damon Villar,

    Welcome to microsoft Q&A, thankyou for posting your query here.

    When you subscribe for a new Azure pay-as-you-go subscription, some default quotas are set. You may need to request for additional quota for certain resources, like specific VM sizes.

    By default Azure implements quota limits on new subscriptions to prevent overconsumption of resources.

    To Check Current Quotas

    In Azure portal.

    Go to the "Subscriptions" blade and select your subscription.

    In the left-hand menu, click on "Usage + quotas" under the "Settings" section.

    Here you can see the current quotas and usage for various resources

    To request a quota increase

    In Azure portal.

    Select Help + support.

    Select New support request.

    For Issue type, select Quota.

    For Quota type, select Virtual Machines.

    Fill the required columns, like the Region (South Central US) and VM size (B2ms,B2s_v2,Am8_v2) for which you want to request a quota increase.

    Submit the request.

    The request will be reviewed by Microsoft team and answer you with increase in quota or if the request not approved they will provide you with why denied and what can be done to resolve the issue.
