StorageServerException Class

Updated: April 24, 2013

[This topic is part of the Windows Azure Storage Client Library 1.7, which has been deprecated. The current recommended version is Storage Client Library 3.0.]

Represents an exception thrown due to a server-side error.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.dll)


public class StorageServerException : StorageException

Server exceptions are caused by server-side failures. Requests resulting in a server exception can be retried with the same parameters. The storage client retries the failed call using the current retry policy, which retries 3 times (by default) before throwing this exception. Even though the operation has been retried and failed, subsequent retries in service code can succeed when the server issue has been resolved.

For instances of the StorageServerException class, the ExtendedErrorInformation property will always be null.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
