VM creation failed

I'm not close to the limit of VMs I can create on my subscription.
VM creation fails with error "ProvisioningState/failed/AllocationFailed"

This issue creates major problems for operational services.
Can you check the remaining resources for VM creation in east US 2?? hourly if possible

    Hello @owen.kim

    Thank you for your heads up.

    For this case scenario, I would think of 2 possible issues that can prevent you from provisioning any compute resource so please see below:

    -Please review your quota usage at the Subscription level and you might check if you are reaching any VM limit or Virtual CPU limit per region. In case this is the issue you can increase your quota capacity.

    -Just in case, review if there is any IAM restriction as well as any availability zone restriction if you require this during the provisioning stage.

    Furthermore, I would like to provide the following article which might be very useful to overcome this problem


    I hope this can be helpful for you.

    Looking forward to hear back from you.
