    Another example is when you are trialing the Azure Migrate feature, the VM size chart that you consult does not match the sizes available when you go to test a migration. For example, I had a VMware Vcenter Server Appliance (a vm) configured in my test lab. The thing had 2 cores, 12GB mem, and 16 disks. The large number of disks was just the way the appliance comes packaged. Consulting the VM size chart, it looks as if an E8-2s_v3 (2 vcpus) or E8-4s_v3 (4 vcpus) might work, as they fit under the 4 core trial liimit. Well, when you go to do a test migration you first do a replication. During the replication setup, you can either choose a VM size or have Azure select a size that fits the specs of the box you are going to migrate. Suddenly, the E8-2s_v3 or the E8-4s_v3 are now 8 vcpu boxes. Thus, you exceed the core limit of the free trial and can't do a test migration. I think Microsoft should really increase the vCPU limit to at least 8.
