need help


  • Hi

    The Windows Azure platform holds an infinite lease on all the page blobs that it considers disks in your storage account so that you don’t accidentally delete the underlying page blob, container, or storage account while the VHD is in use by the VM. If you want to delete the underlying page blob, the container it is within, or the storage account, you will need to detach the disk from the VM first or delete the VM and associated disk object.

    In few scenarios, you may end up getting errors while deleting VHDs even though there are no disks/VMs referring to the VHD. In such cases you can manually break the lease using the powershell script. Craig Landis has a describing these errors, workarounds along with the script.
