Allocation failed for NV6 Promo on Azure

Early this afternoon, I tried starting one of my NV6 Promo VMs I’ve had for a while, and I get a random error “Allocation failed.”

Does anyone know why I could be getting this error? I have been using NV6 for quite some time with no allocation issues, so it’s odd to get an error message randomly right now.

Here is the full error message:

“Allocation failed. We do not have sufficient capacity for the requested VM size in this region. Read more about improving likelihood of allocation success at (Code: AllocationFailed)”


The error message is pretty clear, there is not enough capacity in that region to allocate you a VM of the size requested. Your options are to try another region, or wait.
