FIXED – Azure Deployment failed (Exceed vCores for SQL Managed Instance)

Recently encountered error below when deploying a new SharePoint Server 2019 Small Farm High Availability (HA) with SQL Managed Instance.

Root cause was Azure Region.   Selected “US North Central” which doesn’t offer that feature as of today (04/19/2020).   Selecting different region resolved.

Below is a quick reference table showing which US Azure data centers offer SQL Managed Instance, for planning future deployment.   Cheers shades_smile
