Can't Power on VMs Because Quota Will Be Exceeded

If you see the following message:

"The VM(s) can't be powered on because quota will be exceeded."

This means that your administrator has excluded powered-off VMs from quota calculations, and powering on a VM will exceed your quota. You have a few options:

  • Power off any VMs that you're not currently using.
  • Contact your administrator to increase your quota, or to allow VMs to be powered on when quota has been exceeded.
