Hello Sara,

For more information about this error see

What you can try in SAP CAL is to go to Advanced Mode and select different subnets/availability zones. Hopefully there will be one with sufficient capacity.

Best regards,

hi Stanimir

thanks for your kind reply

i checked it and i know that the problem is: "AWS does not currently have enough available capacity to service your request"

but its not possible that AWS does not have capacity all that time, am trying to activate the instance from more than one week!

and for the subnet, i choose the nearest to my region

anyways thanks a lot :)



Hello Sara, sorry to hear that AWS are out of capacity for instances into this region / zones. Could you try with different instance type?
