How do I troubleshoot "The container should exist" error for a file share migration or cloud storage project?​​

Answer:​

The container that you define in a cloud storage or file share migration must exist before starting the migration, or you will receive the error if the container doesn't exist yet​.

If the container does exist, then this is due to the container name in Azure not matching the container name in the Advanced Options when performing a file share migration. To resolve, navigate to Edit Project, select Advanced Options, and replace the container named migrationwiz with the name of the container that was created in Azure. ​​
