Storage type - General Purpose or Blob?

    Question

  • Dear all,

    I have an Azure storage server that had previously been setup. When the server is created it gives the option to choose the 'Account Kind' as either 'General Purpose' or 'Blob' - is there a way to tell what Account Kind was chosen after the server has been created and deployed?

    Thanks in advanced.

  • Hi,

    According to your description, we can use PowerShell to list the storage account so we can find the kind of the storage account:

    Get-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName zabbix -Name jasonstoragetest

    Kind is storage means the kind is General Purpose, the kind is Blob Storage means the kind is Blob storage:

    If you still have questions, welcome to post back here. Thanks.
