Up the core limit on the Azure Free Trial to at least 10 and preferably 16.
You can't create a demo lab or fully evaluate a solution using Azure IaaS
with a limit of 4 cores on the Free subscription.

Same problem here.

I attempted to test the scaling capabilities of an 8K x265 encoding benchmark which I created a few years ago. What I wanted to do was to check how it would behave with 128 or maybe even more vCPUs. Even if the VM would've worked for just a few hours (given the credit and the costs) it would've been fine for me.
Unfortunately, with a 4 vCPU limit, it's utterly useless for my testing purposes. Any desktop or workstation PC can do (much) better than that. :(
Same Issue here, attempting to create a netapp cloud manager dr site to test snapmirror replication to cloud volume for DR purposes. System states requires 8 cores.
Same issue here, created two RHEL VM's and a WIN VM, maxed out...wanted to build a new RG using CLI interface to compare PORTAL v. CLI experiences. Suggest a better experience would be limit "Free Trial" to a matrix of total VM's and vCPU's.
ie: 16 total cores, with max of 2 cores per VM; At lest this allows building something akin to a baseline WEB, SERVER and DB tier;

I am having the same problem. I was gonna test out ResNet50 on Azure AKS, but got this message in the last stage of my deployment: Operation results in exceeding quota limits of Core. Maximum allowed: 4, Current in use: 0, Additional requested: 18.
I was using AKS cluster using rancher with free trial subscriptions. Trying more than 7 GB takes hours of time to create the cluster but no success. I have wasted my time checking here and there but no mention of free trial limit anywhere.

I am in the same boat as others. My attempt to create an AlwaysOn AG cluster via automatic method failed at the last step due to the 4-core limit on the trial subscription. How can you expect us to purchase something we are not allowed to test first? Please advise.

the community edition of data bricks asks during the sign up process requires for AWS account details/ ARN.
Can anyone help with it ? does it require to have AWS account as well ?
I am signing up for learning purpose for first time.
I wasted lots of time on this.
Then I found the Community Edition actually works with the Quickstart docos.
I am cancelling my free trial (which is useless) and moving to Community edition.
Another "me too" for this. People can not try out any real multi-server scenario with a 4 vCPU limit.

I am using trial subscription and trying to follow https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/service-fabric/service-fabric-cluster-creation-via-portal with constant failure as a result. Please, consider providing trial subscription with enough resources for newbies at Azure, that we can at least follow official tutorials and how-to docs.
one cannot create multi-component testing with just 4 cores. Please consider increasing the limit on the Free subscription. Considering that you have to submit a credit card and you are billed.

The limitation of 4 vcores is not visible anywhere until the final stage of a 4+ vcore deployment - which fails. Better information about the trial limitations would be beneficial.
My application requires testing of either M60 or K80 GPUs, and these are only available with minimum 6 vcores. I don't need 30 days or 200usd processing credits, I just need a few hours with NC6 to compare performance to my current hardware.
Operation results in exceeding quota limits of Core. Maximum allowed: 4, Current in use: 0, Additional requested: 10.
I am facing the above error while creating alwayson cluster VM using free trial subscription on azure.
please help me on this
