Subject Re: Error attaching an uploaded VHD volume to a VM
Date Tue, 01 Oct 2013 07:36:17 GMT
Hi,

  My bad. The volume which i used is shared not local. When creating a new
instance selecting custom size for disk creates a volume of type
shared(disk offerings are created as local). I dont have a shared
storage??? Any way it is a different issue. Will try with a local volume
again.




Thanks and Regards,
bala
