    You need to specify a different name for your storage account. This name must be globally unique - the one you provided is already in us

    @Varma As documented here, your storage account name must be unique within Azure. No two storage accounts can have the same name.

    Explained further in this thread, Storage account must be unique across all subscriptions globally, not just yours. The reason for that is that the name becomes part of the URL, e.g., https://accountname.blob.core.windows.net. Since the URL needs to be resolved to a single account, there is no way to have two accounts with the same name.

    You can check the name availability using the REST API as explained here.

    POST https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/providers/Microsoft.Storage/checkNameAvailability?api-version=2023-01-01
