Unable to view storage properties RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    One of our VM storage accounts is not looking healthy.

    It is impossible to view its properties, containers etc.

    VM is running but backup of this VM is failing.

    The error message while trying same operations in PowerShell is: An operation is currently performing on this storage account that requires exclusive access.

    I believe this has been the same for about 20 days now.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

  • Backup now works as well, not sure what was going on all this time.

  • 1.Are you protecting a managed VM or an un-managed VM?

    2. Has the backup ever worked before?

    3. Could you share the screenshot of the error message?
