    @Ronak: I found this article which suggests that the name is locked for at least 5 days and that currently only Azure support can clear the metadata:

    Same scenario for me and I am also encountering this error. I deleted an Azure SQL DB, the related server and resource group. Worked through the interface to provision a new Azure SQL DB and received the error "Error: Specified Server Name is already used" message. I am not finding this existing VM in any of the other Azure blades to suggest there should be a conflict.
