Hi @venkateshkallam , If you are still facing the issue, please try purging storage & revisions from Databricks Workspace.

You can do this by going to Admin Settings --> Storage --> purge

I did it for my workspace where residual files may be causing the problem and it worked for me.

FYI: It won't delete any of the notebooks, tables or clusters you have created.

I have been facing the similar issue. I am on a free trial subscription and I have been trying to create a unity catalog metastore for learning purpose but getting the error "The region already contains a metastore....".

I have tried creating it in other regions as well but getting the same error.

Please provide assistance on this asap. @Sujitha , @Kaniz

@venkateshkallam what kind of subscription you are using, to be able to work on Unity catalog, you should be on premium subscription
