Unable to create storage account ("An error occurred while validating storage account name")

    Question

  • I just got MSDN subscription account (VS Professional) from my work and I'm trying to create a new storage account (standard, LRS) for my first VM and I'm constantly getting "An error occurred while validating storage account name" even if I type in a bunch of random alphanumeric symbols. Any ideas?

  • I'm having the same issue.  Trying to compare Azure versus EC2 for my own private stuff while learning a bit about azure before my employer moves to it.

  • Exact same issue and exact same scenario as well. Plus one point to AWS I guess.

  • Same, 

    Having issues within westus, I haven't tried elsewhere. 

    I'm unable to create a new VM that I was migrating... the source was removed already... uggggggg... was supposed to be a quick change.

  • Forgot to mention, i'm attempting on Central US.

    No matter what I try for a storage account name, it gives me this same error.

  • Been getting the same for the past hour no matter what I use to create the storage account (ARM Portal, Azure CLI 2.0, PowerShell). location=westus

  • Looks like MS is having issues with Storage Accounts.

    See here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/status/

    Starting at 22:42 UTC on 15 Mar 2017, customers using Storage may receive failure notifications when performing service management operations - such as create, update, delete - for resources hosted in this region. Other services that leverage Storage may also be experiencing impact related to this and impacted services will be listed on the Azure Status Health Dashboard . The next update will be provided in 60 minutes, or as events warrant.

  • Can you please share the snap shot or if you can tell which location you are selecting while creation?

  • @Varun:

    Are you facing the issue now? Can you confirm the storage location? The issue is facing only on single location or multiple locations? Confirm the issue is facing only on General purpose V1 or any other ? share the more information about your environment.
