Azure – Windows 11 23H2 virtual machine requires a subscription with no spending limit

As you know, we running workloads in the cloud cost management is an important part of your governance.

In Azure, you have multiple ways to manage your spending (running) cost; one of them is setting up a spending limit at your subscription level (such as with developer subscription [aka Visual Studio subscription]).

Well, if you try to create a virtual machine using Windows 11 23H2 operating system (including ones provided by Microsoft), you will not be able to create it if your subscription has a spending limit.


So if you want to keep the spending limits on and want to use a Windows 11 23H2 virtual machine, you will have to deploy a Windows 22H2 and then manually upgrade to Windows 11 23H2.
