By using above two links I am trying to set up to Azure VM web servers as a farm with shared configuration and content being stored in an Azure File share.

I was able to successfully export the configuration from one IIS to file storage and in my Azure portal I can see the 3 files it creates in my file storage .

The issues I have is when I try and set up IIS to use the shared configuration in file storage. I keep getting a Invalid password when though I am entering the correct Encryption Keys Password.

    I keep getting a Invalid password when though I am entering the correct Encryption Keys Password.

    Encryption Keys Password is not your file share password. This password is set when you use IIS Manager to export configuration files.

    The same error you can use as reference: invalid-encryption-keys-password-when-enabling-shared-configuration-to-azure-fil

    This link should help ypu: iis-shared-configuration.
