Quota Will Be Exceeded by Powering on VM

If you see the following message in the Service Portal:

"Quota will be exceeded when the VM(s) are powered on."

This means that powered-off VMs aren't included in quota calculations, and powering on a VM will exceed your quota. Your administrator has allowed you to power on VMs even if your quota will be exceeded. It's safe to power on this VM, but you may want to:

  • power off any VMs that you're not currently using, to reduce your quota usage
  • contact your administrator to increase your quota
