Hi,

Is Azure Spot available for student subscription?

I checked on quota section that there is 6 core cpu limit for each region.
But everytime i choose spot it shows this error.

The requested size for resource '/subscriptions/08d0f1c1-3a6a-4108-bf60-8e9ba6126a41/resourceGroups/folding/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/fold' is currently not available in location 'northcentralus' zones '' for subscription '08d0f1c1-3a6a-4108-bf60-8e9ba6126a41'

    Please be aware of the limitations documented here:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/spot-vms#limitations
    specifically check that your subscription is one of the following types:

    • Enterprise Agreement
    • Pay-as-you-go offer code (003P)
    • Sponsored (0036P and 0136P)
    • For Cloud Service Provider (CSP), contact your partner
