ACI stuck in waiting status when I add a private endpoint to storage account

Guillaume LOR 20 Reputation points


I have a file share in a storage account to store the files of my azure container instance,

For security reasons I put it all in Vnets :

  • One subnet for the storage account
  • One subnet with delegation for the container instance

I wanted to add an endpoint to the storage account in order to have a little more security, but as the ACI mounts the mount volume in public it cannot access the storage account, and remains blocked in "waiting" status with error message "Failed to mount volume file shared.".

Is there a solution to this?

    @Guillaume LOR Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Q&A.

    Can you try creating a service endpoint instead of a private endpoint?
    As per the documentation, if you are deploying container groups into an Azure Virtual Network, you must add a service endpoint to your Azure Storage Account.
