Unable to connect to Umbraco Azure instance

I have downloaded the Umbraco Accelerator from http://azureaccelerators.codeplex.com/ in the attempts to build a cloud based CMS system as a test.

I have setup the following:
  • Storage account
  • SQL Azure database
  • Hosted Service
In line with the documentation I have added the following values for AcceleratorConnectionString, DiagnosticsConnectionString and DatabaseConnectionString (some values have been changed for privacy purposes):

<Setting name="AcceleratorConnectionString" value="DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=mystorageaccountname;AccountKey=mystorageaccountkey" />

<Setting name="DiagnosticsConnectionString" value="DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=mystorageaccountname;AccountKey=mystorageaccountkey" />

<Setting name="DatabaseConnectionString" value="Server=tcp:severaddress.database.windows.net;Database=umbraco;User ID=userid@serveraddress;Password=pw;Trusted_Connection=False;Encrypt=True;" />

With these values ammended I have then ran the ServiceConfiguration.bat file and the all seems to have deployed successfully with the command prompt details as follows:

Rapid Provisioning of SQL Azure for Umbraco.

A blob already exists at storage location 'https://storagename.blob.core

In windows Azure it is giving me the URL to visit the application of http://storagename.cloudapp.net/ but upon visiting this URL I am not finding anything.

Also on the instructions for the accelerator it says that CMS admin can access via http://storagename.cloudapp.net/umbraco/default.aspx but this is not working either

Can you please tell me why I am unable to connect to the instance? I would have expected this to be working as there have been no errors generated. I would be very grateful for some advice or assistance
