Exception Condition

The operation times out. The timeout period is initialized through the NamespaceManagerSettings class. You may need to increase the value of the OperationTimeout property to avoid this exception if the timeout value is relatively low.


A queue with the same name and path exists under the same service namespace.


The NamespaceManager object does not have sufficient permission to perform this operation. You should check to ensure that your NamespaceManager has the correct P:Microsoft.ServiceBus.NamespaceManagerSettings.Credential credentials to perform this operation.


Either the specified size in the description is not supported or the maximum allowable quota has been reached. You must specify one of the supported size values, delete existing entities, or increase your quota size.


An internal error or unexpected exception occurs.


The server is overloaded with logical operations. You can consider any of the following actions:

  • Wait and retry calling this function.

  • Remove entities before retry (for example, receive messages before sending any more).
