Unable to move resources between subscriptions

    Question

  • I am unable to move resources between subscriptions, and getting an unclear error message.

    This is what happens:

    I've checked the subscription registrations and they are the same for both subscriptions:

    source:

    Target:

    Now I'm stuck, anyone an idea?

  • So..

    After two weeks the problem is solved by Azure support.

    Turns out that I needed to register the Micorosoft.Compute resource provider on the SOURCE subscription.. yes makes no sense but now it works.

    (the target subscription already had that resource provider registered)

  • Hi Flores,

    Thanks for posting here!

    From the screenshot it looks like its prompting you to register your subscription with the Microsoft.Insights provider. It is pretty clear that you have Microsoft.Storage provider registered on both the subscriptions so I am not quite sure why it's then requesting registration for Microsoft.Insights provider since you're just trying to move the storage resource. Could you try registering it now using the following command in Azure CLI and let us know how it goes, if not done already.

    azure provider register Microsoft.Insights

    Using PowerShell, you could achieve the same with the below cmdlet.

    Register-AzureRmResourceProvider -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.Insights

    In the meantime, I will check this error with our internal team and let you know.

    Regards.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for replying... I've enabled everything with the word "Insight" in it, like so:

    But I'm still getting the same error..

    Just wondering, how can you tell it has something todo with insights? I'dont see that word in the error message.

    Thanks

  • The red boxed highlight in the below screenshot mentions Microsoft.Insights provider.

  • Ahh right.. hadn't noticed that.

    Well that message is gone now. But the error remains.

    ResourceMoveProviderValidationFailed

    Subscription is not registered. (Code: SubscriptionNotRegistered)

  • Hi Flores,

    Can you confirm if you're an administrator for both the subscriptions.

    Although we must dig deep in to finding the root cause of the error message, there have been instances where the resource got moved to the destination subscription despite the error. With that in mind, could you please check your destination subscription once and let us know if the move took place successfully or not.

    Regards.

  • I've tried it ten times now... it does not work.

  • Thanks for confirming, Flores.

    I suggest you create a support ticket for this as it is likely going to require deeper technical analysis beyond the scope of forums.

  • In case you're looking for the place to 'register' for compute: select the subscription, select "My Permissions" (all the way on the bottom), then press "Provider Status" button.

  • Same thing worked for me. Had to register Microsoft.Compute on the source subscription.
    Thanks, this was the only correct answer I could find around.

  • Glad to know the fix worked for you.

  • So, the real question here is: Why hasn't made anyone from Microsoft a problem report out of this in these last 5 months?

    This is clearly a bug in my opinion.
