    Hi @Adm-Amar Pampati

    This error usually happen If you have an Azure Policy that governs tags within your environment, either consider changing the policy from a Deny effect to a Modify effect, or create the resource group manually according to the naming schema required by Azure Backup.

    Below is the link to the Microsoft document on creating a manual resource group for restore collection point.

    I have this exact same issue, but for me the manually created Resource Group for the SnapShots didnt work. Im not 100% certain why, but our resolution was to exempt the resource group that the VM was created inside of.
