  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting here!

    Do you have latest version of PowerShell?

    Please refer below link to install and configure latest version of Azure PowerShell:

    You can run following cmdlets to create Container inside an ARM Storage Account using PowerShell:

    Login-AzureRMAccount -SubscriptionId [SubscriptionID]

    Set-AzureRmCurrentStorageAccount -StorageAccountName [accountName] -ResourceGroupName [ResourceGroupName]

    Then you can run "New-AzureStorageContainer" with resource mode account (create in new portal).
