an error occurred while validating storage account name.

New Contributor

For 2 days now I have been unable to create a storage account.

I checked for service health issues, and I was unable to find any.

I tried different browsers.

I tried waiting a day like most people in forums have done and got resolution.

nothing has worked so far.

this would be the first storage account of this tenant.

do i need something first, like a vlan before a storage container?

oh my god.

i had the wrong subscription selected.

so for anyone else who may have this problem.

scroll down, and you will see a drop down with a warning that says something like

"resource manager is not supported by the selected subscription"

change the subscription in that drop down menu.

....sigh.
