Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

This error appeared while I was working in Azure Storage Emulator. I have verified the processes and is not used by another process and this error still appears. Can anyone help me to fix this one ? What could be the another process that is using Windows Azure Storage Emulator ?

Thank you !

Hello Arthur,

This kind of error message may be the result of a port already being in use. Check which of the storage services (blobs, tables, or queues) is failing to start, and see if anything on your computer is consuming that port.

The most common case is blob storage not starting because BitTorrent/any other application is using port 10000. Here we only have 3 ports to check, please check them 1 by 1 and using netstat with -p switch. This would give you a clearer picture.

Once you get to know about application, which is using the port – just refrain it from doing so , and your issue should get fixed.
