unable to delete a container, the prompt says that the vhd is linked to a VM but this VM is not in my resource

    Question

  • the error prompt - blob“mhhome-mhhome-2015-09-26.vhd” is currently used as the disk of the VM “mhhome-mhhome-0-201509260152360206”, but i can't find this VM in any of my resources, this should be something wrong with azure.

  • Please try to use the old portal (manage.windowsazure.com) and then reach out to below path:

    virtual machines > Disks

    select the disk and then delete it from bottom part.

    once delete, then try to delete the container and if need storage account.

    thank you.

  • that works, thanks a lot, Dharmesh! a little bit strange that this can't be solved in the new portal though :)
