Azure Backup with Windows Admin Center - Invalid vault credentials provided

Markus Quirmbach 41 Reputation points


we are trying to set up Azure Backup for our on premises servers with the Windows Admin Center.
The WAC is registered in Azure.
We set it up one day and created an new vault for AzBackup from within the WAC but then realized that this vault is geo-redundant, which we don't want. So we deleted that vault and created a new one manually (locally-redundant).
But now - if we try to set up Azure Backup within the Windows Admin Center we always get the error "Invalid vault credentials provided".
The agent gets installed without a problem.


We have no clue what's the issue here.

Can anyone help?

    @Markus Quirmbach ,

    If the old vault is registered on the windows admin center still or the new vault is using the vault credentials file from the old vault then most likely that you will encounter this error.

    Download the latest vault credential file from the new vault and use it to reregister the vault with new credentials files.
