Goal was to rename URL for SharePoint Online HUB Site. I tested on DEV tenant to unregister HUB Site, Change the URL and Register again. it was working, all sites get connected again back to the Site with new URL.

After I unregistered the HUB, switched the URL on live tenant I cannot "re-register" a HUB from that site with this error:

The website has exceeded the maximum storage limit for files. To free up space, delete files you don't need and empty the Recycle Bin. (translated with Google Translate)

  • Recycle bin is empty
  • I tried to expand the storage for that site with extra 100GB (Site size: ~10MB)
  • Tenant storage have more than enough space
  • tried to register with Register-SPOHubSite or Register-PnPHubSite with same error from SP server

Any ideas? I am wondering that maybe crawl needs to happen?

  • It is recommended to check the following uls log to see if you can find the root cause of the problem. Jun 8, 2023 at 6:12
  • It was SharePoint Online.
