I am using the Windows Azure PowerShell CmdLets to perform deployments of Cloud Services.

This was all working well until I started to receive the error “total requested resources are too large for the specified vm size”.  Deployments via Visual Studio worked fine.

A few details about VM size are here:

The size of my extracted package files must have grown beyond 23,256MB (Calculated as: 229,400 MB (small vm disk space for local storage)- 200,00MB (default diagnostics store size) - 6,144 MB (reserved for system files))

I considered two options:

  1. Update from Small to Medium VM’s for the web role.
  2. Reduce the size of the diagnostics store.

I implemented option 2 and reduced the diagnostics store from the default 200,00MB to 150,00MB.  My deployments now work again.
