Creating UK West or UK South Cosmos DB failing

Nick 1 Reputation point

Does anyone know of any issues creating Cosmos accounts on UK South or West? Just says not enough resources due to too high a demand.

Creates in US regions without issue but I'm trying to set up in the same data centre as my VM...

    Hi @Nick Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Q&A.
    Apologies for the trouble you are facing.
    This could be related to high demand in certain regions. I tried creating a cosmos in UK south and west but facing the same issue.

    "Sorry, we are currently experiencing high demand in UK South region and cannot fulfill your request at this time.
