Maximum Price is Too Low¶
This can happen if the maximum price you provided when you created your Spot Fleet Request is lower than the Spot price of the cheapest instance type you selected. You can fix this by
either increasing your maximum price or choosing cheaper instances. The
Instance Types tab in the Spot Fleet Configuration dialog has the current Spot price for both Linux and Windows
listed beside each Instance Type.
