Watch the core limit in your Azure tenant

So when spinning up a new host inside the new WVD experience I received the error as shown above:

The template deployment ‘AddVMsToHostPool-7b00d9c7-8690-455f-90fa-d69d2661601f-deployment’ is not valid according to the validation procedure. The tracking id is ‘867f4f35-b3dc-42c7-879d-b588517f15d0’. See inner errors for details

I wasted plenty of time looking in other location rather than looking in the “inner error: as recommended. To get there, press the copy button at the top right as shown and then paste the information. When I did do this and actually read what it said I saw:

Operation could not be completed as it results in exceeding approved Total Regional Cores quota. Additional details – Deployment Model: Resource Manager, Location: australiaeast, Current Limit: 10, Current Usage: 10, Additional Required: 2, (Minimum) New Limit Required: 12. Submit a request for Quota increase at

Damm! I gotta read those errors more fully I reminded myself, instead of ‘assuming’ and rushing off elsewhere for solution.

The end result was that I simply needed to lift the core quota for the tenant to allow for the additional VMs. Hopefully, this help someone else wasting time looking for a solution when it is really there in your face.

  1. Hi Robert,
    When you say .. “I simply needed to lift the core quota for the tenant to allow for the additional VMs.”
    Did you have to request the increase from MS or is there a way for the you to increase the cores.
    I ran into the core issue a couple of months ago and had to open a ticket and request the core increase.
    Curious of this has changed.
    Thanks,
