Cannot create Windows App Service if the Resource Group already has a Linux Service Plan with resources using it RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are facing a situation where in we are unable to create both Windows and Linux App Service Plan side by side in the same resource group. If a Linux Service Plan already exists and there are App Services already using it, we get the below error, when we try to create a new Windows App Service Plan. Any ideas how to resolve this.

    "The requested app service plan cannot be created in the current resource group because it is hosting Linux Apps. Please choose a different Resource Group or create a new one"

  • That is expected behavior. There is a current limitation mentioned about not mixing Windows and Linux apps in the same resource group.
