    after I removed the spending limit

    Can you elaborate on this? What type of subscription is it?

    "unable to Failed to start virtual machine 'xxx'. Error: Subscription is not registered."

    Check the following post: Azure Error: The subscription is not registered to use provider_name

    Please inform us if this solve your case.

    Note! If you are not sure what to resource provider to register or any other step, then please open a ticket in your subscription and ask the team to fix this for you. I would probably use the billing category for this ticket, since this related to service which you cannot use and billing ticket is free even if you do not have a paid support.

    You should try re-registering the microsoft.virtualmachine resource provider. This can be done on the resource provider tab of your subscription in the portal.

    Hello @Mutasem Al Jundi ,

    Thank you for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to answer your question. As suggested above, you need to first ensure the resource providers responsible for compute resources are registered under your subscriptions, if not you can register them from Subscriptions->Resource providers blade on azure portal.


    If you are still not able to start the VM from portal, try the azure cloud shell on azure portal, and run the following command. Reference : start-azvm

    Start-AzVM -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup11" -Name "VirtualMachine07"  

    Please "Accept as Answer" if any of above helped so that, it can help others in community looking for remediation for the similar issues.
