Can't create a web service in Azure because it doesn't think I have a storage account


  • I am unable to upload a WCF service (package).


    New->Cloud service (classic)

    Storage account (Configure required settings)

    "No storage accounts found in the selected subscription and location 'Australia Southeast'."

    But I did create a storage account in that location! Why doesn't it see it?

    I am currently using the free trial subscription and would like to see how easy/difficult it is to deploy WCF services.

  • Hello Aylmer,

    Thank you for posting here! We are happy to assist to you.

    I think the issue is with the location i.e. 'Australia Southeast'.

    For now, the provided location 'Australia Southeast' is not permitted for this resource provider 'Microsoft.ClassicStorage/storageAccounts'.

    You can fetch the supported location by using the following cmdlets:

    PS C:> Get-AzureLocation | Where-Object Name -EQ'Microsoft.ClassicStorage/storageAccounts'

    The supported locations for the storage accounts are as follows:

    East Asia, Southeast Asia, East US, East US 2, West US, North Central US, South Central US, Central US, North Europe, West Europe, Japan East, Japan West, Brazil South

  • It still does not work:

    No storage accounts found in the selected subscription and location 'Japan East'.

    I created a cloud service and storage account both in Japan East, but I still get the same type of error. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Please advise. Thanks!

  • I had to deploy it via Visual Studio to make it work. It created some sort of classic storage for me, which is different than what the Azure portal did..

  • The original storage account you created was probably a Resource Manager storage account. Be sure to create a Classic storage account -- this can be specified on the blade in the portal for creating a storage account.

    Cloud Services only work with classic storage accounts, and would not list Resource Manager storage accounts.
