not able to connect an Azure Data Lake Gen2 storage account

When we try to connect a premium workspace to an Azure data lake gen2 storage account. During setup we are encountering a message stating: the workspace azure connection uses a storage account that is in the tenant's home region. The home region for the tenant may not be the region of the Power BI Premium capacity. Dataflow data and dataset backups will be stored in your tenant's home region. 


We are able to specify the container, also some files are created in the container Power-BI but we are not able save the configuration We are using Power BI Premium Gen2 P1

Same issue here. Same message when I try to connect on tenant or workspace level from PBI service. I checked, and my tenant, PBI premium and ADLSG2 storage account are on the same region.
