  • I had the same issue when I started using a Free/Trial account. I have managed to create the first VM but when I tried to create a second I could not because all sizes were greyed out. 

    I have then added a pay as you go subscription and even after that I had the same issue...

    Eventually I decided to log out of Azure and back in - that has solved the problem!

  • Hi LadyHolmes,

    Thank you for posting here! We are happy to assist you.

    • May I know which Operating System are you trying to deploy?  

    If you are trying to deploy Windows VM, Please refer to the below mentioned suggestions.

    It seemed to be an issue with the region, try deploying in different size and region. For great over view on sizes refer to the below mentioned links:

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/documentation/articles/virtual-machines-windows-sizes/

    You may refer to the below mentioned link for Azure sizes and there series.

    Below mentioned link will provide you the information. How to deploy the Windows Virtual machine in different ways.

    We support a wide variety of virtual machine sizes. Virtual machines are billed on per-minute basis.

    Virtual Machines are supported in both a Basic and Standard tier. The Basic tier provides an economical option for dev/test workloads and other applications that do not require load-balancing, auto-scaling or memory-intensive virtual machines. The Standard tier is our recommended option for all production workloads.

  • Hi Sumanth BM
     I tried deploying VMs for various OS including Windows, Linux, SQL etc.

    But i am getting the same error for all of them .

    The pricing tier is available if i choose to deploy my VMs in classic mode but not in Resource Manager!

    I have tried using two different regions.

    I really need to sort this. I'd be glad if you could help!

  • Hi Lady,

    Thank you for the reply!

    1. Are you using a trial subscription?

    Check and make sure the time zone is set to your time zone correctly or the region in which are you installing.

  • What level of access you are having on subscription? 

    Also check your access on RM group where you are trying to create VM.

    are you allow to create new RM group? if yes then try this first and try to create new ARM VM in new RM group just to make sure that you have appropriate access.
