Seems you are running out of resources. While you are creating VM from "fail over clustur"

check the star rating and use the maximum star host.

When i'm saying resources it means it can be RAM/CPU/Disk

you can calculate the RAM assigned to the all VMs and total into the host.
CPU must not be more than the 1:2 ratio means if you have 4 core CPU you may use upto 8  cores but left atleast 2 core for host.
Disk : check all disk created in size and total size, if you are using dynamic disk then also make sure some free space is into the datastore..

Hi,
whats the RAM and Procs you are assigning to this VM?
is there any limitations set by provider on max RAM, Procs? i feel that due to these limitations you are not able to create VM.

Is there any way you can check how much resources you have used up till now.
How many VMs has been created till now and how many are powered On.?

If the amount of resource free "is Less than" the amount you are configuring on the new VM, then the error you are getting is obvious.
Either you need to reduce the resources assigned to running VMs or PowerOff some of the VMs (which are not necessary)

You have to check if this is not getting refreshed. Until it show the correct figure you will not be able to create VM same error will be reflected again and again.

Yes but my question rather is vmm not picking up what my hyper v hosts are offering ie ...ram cpu or is the cloud settings not seeing these resources.

Where do i dig around to find out whats happening.

Thanks so far mate.

The error says it, you need a witness cluster! which means a dedicated volume for the witness cluster because Witness needs to be an odd number ... please read below I think your answer is on the first link
