Unable to create VM in the Microsoft Learn Sandbox

Gibson, Victoria 0 Reputation points

The instructions in the AZ-900 Microsoft Learn series instruct to create a VM. When I follow the instructions, it asks me for a subscription even though I'm int he Microsoft Learn Sandbox so I am unable to proceed or complete the creation of the VM. When I click "Create a Resource", I then click on Create under Virtual Machines, and can't get past this screen. Can you please advise? I would like to be able to do the practice exercise in the Sandbox environment but can't get past this step. User's image

    Hi Victoria,

    First, if the sandbox has expired please Activate a new one.

    When you click the link in the exercise to navigate to the Azure portal, the portal should open and you should see MICROSOFT LEARN SANDBOX in upper right corner along with your account name. If not, please click the gear icon and click Switch button next to sandbox.

    If the above doesn't help, please post screenshot of what you are seeing when you navigate to the portal. You can block out your account name in upper right for privacy reasons.
