According to the docs:

1189323
persisting-shell-storage (secondary storage part)

I should be able to mount my existing storage created in eastus2 to Azure shell CLI
Unfortunatelly it doesn't work.

I am trying to mount my storage via Azure CLI running the command:

clouddrive mount -s mySubscription -g myRG -n storageAccountName -f fileShareName  

Getting the error:

"ERROR: The storage account is not in the valid location. Expect: eastus Actual: eastus2"  

Can someone explain it?
Can I mount my storage or have to create another one in f.i. east.us (primary region)?

    Hello @braxx ,
    You need not create a new storage account but you will have to unmount the existing cloud drive by using Dismount-CloudDrive command in powershell.
    Once you open the new cloud shell session , it will ask for all those details.

    Regards,
    Shiva.
