We have one on-prem Windows Server 2012 R2 computer successfully onboarded to Azure Arc using the OnboadingScript.ps1 downloaded from Azure Portal. Running the script on the second computer also Windows Server 2012 R2 fails with this error:

time="2020-07-08T20:31:09-07:00" level=error msg="Request error: Error storing certificate, Details: The requested operation cannot be completed. The computer must be trusted for delegation and the current user account must be configured to allow delegation." Error="Error response from agent"

C:\Windows\System32\>azcmagent show
Resource Name :
Resource Group Name :
Subscription ID :
Tenant ID :
VM ID :
Location :
Agent Version : 0.9.20164.002
Agent Logfile : C:\ProgramData\AzureConnectedMachineAgent\Log\himds.log

Agent Status : Disconnected

Agent Error Code : Error in storing in certificate store
Agent Error Details : The requested operation cannot be completed. The computer must be trusted for delegation and the current user account must be configured to allow delegation.
Agent Error Timestamp : 08 Jul 20 20:31 MST

Looking for tips to troubleshoot this. Unable to run azcmagent reconnect due to this error:

C:\Windows\System32\>azcmagent reconnect --tenant-id 56xxxx6e-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-9066xxxxab2d
time="2020-07-08T21:08:46-07:00" level=fatal msg="Invalid Resource Name. Resource Name can only contain alphanumeric characters, - , _ or . Resource Name cannot contain more than 54 characters." Resource Name=

Thank you.
