Having issues with VS Server Explorer viewing Azure Storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've been using VS server explorer pretty successfully for awhile. Recently (not sure of the exact point), the Azure storage portion started giving me trouble. It would not auto-populate with my storage account, and I now have to manually input the account name and key manually each time to get my storage to pop up. 

    Also, I can no longer access any blobs via server explorer. It says invalid key - even though I can access via other means with the same account name and key. I have already tried making sure my computer has the correct time synced up. Are there any other steps I can try do fix this issue? For now I am using a third party client to perform blob admin operations, but it would be really convenient if I could continue to do so with VS server explorer.

    Thanks,

    Thomas

  • Hi Thomas,

    Thanks for your post.

    I 'd like to suggest you can try to sing out and re-sign in the Azure server explore.

    1.right click the Azure node on server explore.

    2.Select "Connect to with Microsoft Azure " and then login using your account.

    3.Make sure your select the right subscription.

    4.If storage list didn't include your  account, you could right-click the storage node, and select Attach External Storage.

    Another approach is that you can re-install the Azure tool.

    Regards,

    Will

  • I may have spoken too soon - this did indeed work, but the next day, the same issue happened. I'd like to not have to sign out/sign back in each time I run VS, any idea about what may be causing this to happen? I'll try to reinstall Azure Tools in the meantime.

    Thanks,

    Thomas
