I stopped the Test Environment AKS cluster we have in westeurope - contains one node and only for 1 node pool (4 node Count/ cores:16 vCPUs / 64 GiB of memory ).

How can I ran it again - I received this error and saw the 4 possible solutions in this link :

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/azure/azure-kubernetes/create-upgrade-delete/akscapacityerror

Does Microsoft have a waiting limit time - if I choose the Fourth option?

Solution 4: Retry the operation

Capacity is often reclaimed when other users stop or delete their AKS clusters. Therefore, the operation might succeed if you retry it later.

About the Third option -Solution 3: Use an Azure Enterprise subscription

When capacity is running low, we limit free tier AKS clusters for customers who don't have an Enterprise Agreement (EA) subscription first in order to reserve resources for real production scenarios. Make sure that you use an EA subscription to create your AKS cluster.

If now I will upgrade to Enterprise Agreement (EA) subscription- will the AKS cluster run immediately?

This is really Urgent as I need this Cluster soon Please.

    Hello, @Meir Asulin !

    How do I troubleshoot the AKSCapacityError error code?

    When the compute SKU you are using is unavailable due to capacity, you can try a different region or you can wait for resources to free up when other users stop or delete their AKS clusters.

    • Does Microsoft have a waiting limit time if I try option 4: Wait for other users stop or delete their AKS clusters?
      I believe there is a reasonable request limit but you could try to redeploy your resources relatively frequently.
    • Will AKS run immediately if I try option 3: Use an Azure Enterprise subscription?
      While this is not a guarantee, it does give you priority when reserving resources. If you recently had resources on a non-Enterprise subscription there is better chance that Enterprise subscription will have resources available (unless there was a sudden surge in Enterprise subscription demand but you would still have priority as other resources become available).

    I hope this helps! Let us know if you have additional questions in the comments.
