Cost Optimizer 5.0.0 has the following known issue:
Some instance types do not have the numOfNICs field listed in the API that populates instance types for some Azure regions. For these instance types, the CloudCenter Suite UI uses a placeholder value of 0 in this field. When you save the instance type for Azure with a 0 value, the configuration fails as every instance type requires NICs as specified in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/sizes-gpu. To workaround this issue, use the payload request body of the Update Cloud Instance Type API call to update the numOfNICs field to the required number of NICs.
