I have SQL instances that will have TDE enabled soon and I need a backup option for the Certificate and DEK after the database has been encrypted, I don't want to have the files on the same location where the databases are hosted so I thought key vault would do but I am getting errors there as well. Which option can I use to have these files backed up there? Please help.
