How to increase the quota for your subscription in Microsoft Azure portal?
If you have the following error message in the SAP Cloud Appliance Library when you deploy a solution instance in the Microsoft Azure cloud provider:
The subscription policy limit for resource type 'Total Regional Cores' was exceeded. The limit for resource type 'Total Regional Cores' is 4 per subscription, the current count is 0, and the requested increment is 17. The subscription policy limit for resource type 'Standard Dv2 Family Cores' was exceeded. The limit for resource type 'Standard Dv2 Family Cores' is 4 per subscription, the current count is 0, and the requested increment is 17. Please contact Microsoft Azure support to enable the required resources.
You must increase the Cores quota for your Microsoft Azure account. Note that this procedure must be repeated for each subscription in this account.
Note that you can check the size requirements by going to the solution details in the SAP Cloud Appliance Library and navigating to the RECOMMENDED VM SIZES section. There you can see the required cores for each virtual machine.
If you would like to see the details of the different available sizes for the solution, you can choose Calculate Cost and choose the desired cloud provider and select the required region. There you will see the different available sizes and their details, as well as the required storage to successfully start the solution instance. Please note that the update of the quota generally takes some time. Additionally, it is possible that some of the quota may be consumed by activities not related to the work with the SAP Cloud Appliance Library.
