Following circular nested profile path identified

If you’re getting the following error:

Circular nested profile definitions are not allowed. Following circular nested profile path identified: ->

Then very likely you got an ARM template like this:

  "type": "Microsoft.Network/trafficManagerProfiles/nestedEndpoints",
  "apiVersion": "[variables('tmApiVersion')]",
  "name": "[concat(variables('tmName'), '/', parameters('location'))]",
  "properties": {
    "endpointStatus": "Enabled",
    "targetResourceId": "[resourceId('Microsoft.Network/trafficManagerProfiles', variables('tmName'))]",
    "weight": 1,
    "minChildEndpoints": 1,
    "geoMapping": [

What means you created a Geographic traffic-routing based Traffic Manager that references itself. Hence the error.
