Failed to create file system for "blob:": didn't find section in config file

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am not able to mount a azure blob on a VM, rclone config gives me a error :slight_smile:
Failed to create file system for "blob:": didn't find section in config file

rclone config file contents looks like this.

[rclone-mount]
type = azureblob
account = #abcmyblob#
key = #mykey#

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

Paste command here

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Paste config here

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Paste  log here

Probably because you didn't use the right remote name but you didn't share what you actually ran.

rclone about rclone-mount:

is an example.

I have run the command as mentioned below

  1. rclone config

  2. added a new remote

  3. selected "Microsoft Azure blob storage"

  4. Provided account name and key.

  5. Skipped Advanced config

  6. Accepted the inputs

  7. run the command rclone lsd blob:

command in step 7 is giving the error

blob: isn't the name of your remote.

rclone-mount: is the name so use that instead of blob:

Based on the config you shared.

yes, rclone-mount is the name I want to use on the VM to see the remote.

BTW I have referred the below link to configure rclone

also,
rclone about rclone-mount:

is giving the same error :

Failed to create file system for "rclone-mount:": didn't find section in config file

So that's wrong?

You'd have to share your rclone.conf setup.

rclone config show

Redact any keys or passwords before sharing it.

C:\Tools>rclone config show
[#Removed the account name#]
type = azureblob
account = #removed the account name#
key = #Removed the Key#

Without knowing what that is, I can't tell you what to type.

That's the name you'd use though.

[a1081arcfau]
is the account name

So use

rclone about a1081arcfau:

as an example.
