Feature request: Accelerated networking supported NIC count from resource skus api

Copper Contributor

It is the case that some instance types can only support one network interface with accelerated networking enabled.
Example that can support more than one enabled: Standard_DS2_v2
Example that can only support one (see above error): Standard_D2s_v3


If you try to create a VMSS (for example) with instance type Standard_D2s_v3 with two NICs both with accelerated networking, you get the following error:

compute.VirtualMachineScaleSetsClient#CreateOrUpdate: Failure sending request: StatusCode=400 – Original Error: Code='VmSizeRestrictedToSingleNicWithAcceleratedNetworkingEnable' Message='Virtual machine /subscriptions/49fc77ed-d214-4789-9936-9fcdc9028d53/resourceGroups/ZAZA-K8S/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachineScaleSets/us3-prod-dog-zaza-2d523fec4d3051f8 with size Standard_D2s_v3 is restricted to have only one network interface with accelerated networking enabled.' Details=[]


The feature request is to include this information: "How many NICs with accelerated networking can this instance type support" in the resource skus endpoint (and in the corresponding golang SDK): https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/compute/resource-skus/list


I have been communicating with azure support on this, the internal number they are tracking the feature request with is 10736394
