az aks create --resource-group myResourceGroup --name myAKSCluster --node-count 2 --generate-ssh-keys

Invalid base64-encoded string: number of data characters (17) cannot be 1 more than a multiple of 4

I tried executing this command multiple times via windows cmd or even VS Code terminal

    For me its working as expected

    az aks create --resource-group myResourceGroup --name myAKSCluster --node-count 2 --generate-ssh-keys

    SSH key files 'C:\Users\<>.ssh\id_rsa' and 'C:\Users\<>.ssh\id_rsa.pub' have been generated under ~/.ssh to allow SSH access to the VM. If using machines without permanent storage like Azure Cloud Shell without an attached file share, back up your keys to a safe location

    • Running ..

    Can you check the resource group exists before creating the cluster
