I get error "storage acount 'xxxx' not found" when trying to load VHD to my azure storage.


  • I have created the Storage account but when i upload the vhd using the Add-AzureVhd - Destination command, i get the error message that the storage account does not exist. what am i missing? I know there is another almost identical post like this but I still can't figure it out ( 

    I can go to the portal and see that the storage account exists. I've ran get-azuresubscription. It looks like something may have been edited out of the last post that refers to security I need to set but I can see it.

  • Hi Lu_Bu

    You should try to the comman:

    Get-AzureStorageAccount  #Check the storage account and the storage is under you azure Subscription

    Get-AzureSubscription   #get the azure Subscription

    Select-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionId  'xxxxxx'  #select  the azure Subscription

  • I get an error on 

    Get-AzureStorageAccount –StorageAccountName "namehere"

    that the storage account was not found. I only have one subscription and I have used the get and select AzureSub commands. I just have no idea why it can't find it. I even have the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer open and it shows that account right under "Storage Accounts"
