Unable to migrate classic storage resource to new subscription

asdf 1 Reputation point

I'm having the same issue as this archived question. https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/azure/en-US/87dc476b-0253-462a-a368-698ab6a4c32a/cant-move-resource-to-new-subscription

I'm trying to move a classic storage resource to another subscription. Following the docs, I'm using the rest api. The call to check if the subscription can participate in a cross-subscription move fails saying it can't move a web application that doesn't exist. The only resource in my subscription is a single classic storage resource.
