Suddenly my storage key stopped working

    Question

  • My app stopped working because the key to my storage account is not recognized as valid, however, it is valid. I checked again and again.

    Nobody changed the key. For some reason stopped working.

    Please help

  • so so so sorry.

    I'm developing a time sensitive application and had to change my local time. It was that! So, I'm a bit newbie sometimes :)

    Is that because I'm pointing to the SSL version?

    thank you!

  • Hi Sebnetarg,

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    I am trying to involve someone familiar with this topic to further look at this issue.

    In the meantime, I would suggest you to use the secondary key and check if it resolves the issue. Then you can regenerate the primary key. [I assume you are having issues with the primary key].

  • I changed the configuration to the secondary key.

    But, how can that happen? I keep the broken key for investigation.

  • Well,

    Now it seems that the secondary key is starting to fail, at least in my dev environment, not yet in production.

    I've been managing azure storage accounts for almost 3 years, I'm not a newbie. Something's going wrong.

  • Can you elaborate what you meant by changing the local time? I'd like to better understand your scenario so that we can find out the exact reason.

  • Yes, it seems that if I change my computer clock several hours, the login to storage account starts failing.
