SCCM CMG Setup | Contributor Permission

The Azure Activity Log show below errors. I recalled that during setup I have selected US-East region and mistakenly selected a resource group located in India. The setup was failed and I have rectified the issue next time however I continued to get same error.

Solution: I could not figure out why this issue was happening or if wrong region / resource group selection was the reason behind this. The google search show that many other also faced this issue however no real reasons was documented. As suggested in some blog, I simply closed and re-launched MECM console and started CMG setup again. It’s worked fine this time without any issue. Other mentioned that they have waited for few hours and after that it’s worked fine for them.
