StorageClientException Class

Updated: April 24, 2013

[This topic is part of the Microsoft Azure Storage Client Library 1.7, which has been deprecated. See Storage Client Library for the latest version.]

Represents an exception thrown by the Windows Azure storage client library.

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

Dim instance As StorageClientException

<SerializableAttribute> _
Public Class StorageClientException
	Inherits StorageException

When the StorageClientException is thrown it indicates that there was a problem with the request the client made to the server. Any timeout related exceptions are automatically retried, and therefore, retrying the operation yourself will almost certainly result in the same exception being thrown. The one exception to this rule is when the ExtendedErrorInformation property indicates that ErrorCode is equal to InternalError.

bool canRetry = true;
while (canRetry) 
        // Perform data access operation
    catch (StorageClientException ex)
        if (!ex.ExtendedErrorInformation.ErrorCode.Equals(
            canRetry = false;
            // Wait before retrying the operation


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