How do I troubleshoot InstanceLimitExceeded errors when starting or launching an EC2 instance?
Last updated: 2020-03-30
I’m unable to start or launch my Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance, and I'm receiving the following error:
InstanceLimitExceeded “Your quota allows for 0 more running instance(s).”
How can I troubleshoot this issue?
The InstanceLimitExceeded error indicates that you reached the limit on the number of running On-Demand instances that you can launch in a Region.
You can request an instance limit increase on a per-Region basis. For more information, see Amazon EC2 Service Limits.
