I am attempting to move my storage resource to a new subscription. I have managed to move all of my other resources across, but with this storage resource, I am receiving an error message.

enter image description here

When I click to see the details, this is the infomration I am given

ERROR TYPE Resource move validation failed. Please see details. Diagnostic information: timestamp '20161202T110420Z', subscription id '9b0af2c9-172c-480b-a294-7c9e3fe07269', tracking id 'ee7f2443-4e5b-4e8c-b335-4f5142585599', request correlation id 'c1d9fdd4-f46a-4ccd-990b-f104c40a09ac'. (Code: ResourceMoveProviderValidationFailed)

Error Details Subscription is not registered. (Code:SubscriptionNotRegistered)

I have double checked and the Microsoft.Storage provider is definately registered for that subscription as shown below. Am I missing something?

  • If Microsoft.Storage is registered on both subscriptions, this issue shouldn't happen. I would suggest you open a ticket with Microsoft so that a dedicated professional will help you with the request. – Steven Lee - MSFT Dec 7 '16 at 2:33

A bit late, but for others to reference I found a solution here;


Basically in the "Service Providers" section of the source subscription ensure you have registered the Microsoft.Compute resource provider, and bingo!
