  • Hi,

    In addition to "Azure-Amjad" reply,

    If you trying to change the replication type from "GeoRedundant" to "Locally Redundant" through Powershell, then you may try below command:

    Set-AzureStorageAccount -StorageAccountName <storageaccountname> -GeoReplicationEnabled $false -Label “disabled geo replication”

    Before, you execute the above command, check if the GeoRedundant is enabled or disable by following command:

    Get-AzureStorageAccount -StorageAccountName <storageaccountname>
