How to delete storage account? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I have gigantic problem with storage account on my Azure portal.

    When I try to delete storage account (where any VM, BLOB or other is not connected to this storage account) then I have only a notification with the information

    "Failed to delete storage account 'mobileironas'. There was an error processing your request. Please try again in a few moments."

    Could anyone help me to delete the storage account on my account?

    Thanks in advance

    The container may has an active disk artifact and the advice to remove it from the repository.

    Go to the Windows Azure Management Portal.
    Click on Virtual Machines.
    Click on Disks.
    Click on the disk.
    Click on Delete Disk.
    After that, the storage account can be deleted.

    if you've already deleted all of your Virtual Machines and it shows 0; there still will be artifacts under the disks tab.
    Disks are detached from a deleted VM asynchronously, it may take a few minutes after the VM is deleted for this field to clear up.
