Delete storage unit (3 Month Free Trial) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to remove a storage account which is linked to the original 3 month free trial I had with windows azure. The storage account has a vhds which has a vhd image. If I try delete that image I receive the following error

    "There is currently a lease on the blob and no lease ID was specified in the request."

    From reading around I gathered this is due to a virtual machine, image or disk being connected to it. So I have gone to my virtual machines and check the 3 tabs (I've actually deleted all my VM's, disks and images to make sure none are linked). However I still recieve the same error.

    I found a post online about how to delete this via azure powershell (http://www.marlinsbits.com/2013/04/error-deleting-vhd-there-is-currently-a-lease-on-the-blob-and-no-lease-id-was-specified-in-the-request/) and after running that it gives some very strange output:

    Checking whether the blob is currently registered as a disk or image...
    VERBOSE: 22:15:04 - Begin Operation: Get-AzureDisk
    VERBOSE: 22:15:06 - Completed Operation: Get-AzureDisk
    VERBOSE: 22:15:06 - Begin Operation: Get-AzureVMImage
    VERBOSE: 22:15:10 - Completed Operation: Get-AzureVMImage
    The blob is still registered as an OS image with name '0b11de9248dd4d87b18621318e037d37__RightImage-CentOS-6.2-x64-v5.8.

    4695bc2128e3e5a255ba__RightImage-Windows-2012-x64-v13.5'.  Please delete the OS image first.

    I just had the account change to a pay as you go so I could try delete it (I couldn't even access the containers to see what it was linked, it just wouldn't let me delete it at all). I can just disable the subscription so it wont bill me but it would be nice to remove it from the dashboard or at least figure out what is preventing me from removing it.

    (I had images to add but I can't seem to post them until I am verified, showing empty DISKS and IMAGES tabs)

    I'm not really sure what else I could delete which may be linked . . .

    Thanks,

    Edd

  • Hi,

    I suggest trying this method that was provided by this thread (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10969012/how-do-i-delete-an-azure-storage-account-containing-a-leased-blob )

    The procedure to remove the disk image from the blob repository is:

    •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.

    Notes:

    •This applies even 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.

    See also: Unable to delete VHD, “There is currently a lease on the blob…”

    Hope this helps, if you find this didn’t solve your issue, please feel free to let me know.

    Best Regards

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your response.

    There are no disks or images on my azure account. I am still unable to delete the storage account.

    Thanks,

    Edd

  • Hi,

    To ensure that no more than one VM is writing to the VHD a lease is created. This lease needs to be broken before VHD is available to other VMs or deleted (as is the case here). To remove the lease, you have manually break the lease from Azure management portal. If you didn't find any lease, I recommend you to contact support (http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/support/contact/  )

    Best Regards

  • Hi

    I have contacted support and they refereed me here to the forums. I can't post images directly but here are two images of my virtual machine DISKS and IMAGES tab. As you can see they are all empty. I have deleted everything from my azure accont so now only the active directory and the storage unit remain.

    http://drogopoints.com/images.jpg

    http://drogopoints.com/disks.jpg

    I am still unable to delete the VHD inside it (and of storage unit because of that). Is there anywhere to file bugs for windows azure as I've not found any in the feedback forms?

    Thanks,

    Edd
