I am setting up bandwidth throttling for Azure Site Replication. Anyhow when I am registering Azure Backup on on-premises VM, I am prompted for Azure Vault Credentials.

"Select the vault credentials downloaded from the quick start page in the Microsoft Azure Backup Vault."

Unfortunately I already probably ticked the box "do not show this again" for the Quick Start Page.

    Have you gone back to Recovery Service Vault > Backup > Prepare infrastructure > Step 2, download vault creds – Mass Nerder Jul 20 '18 at 18:52
  • That resolved the issue, thank you!. It was just a bit strange because the Download button was grayed out unless I checked the box "Already using the System Center Data Protection Manager or any other System Center product". Which I am not using any of those products to my knowledge. – joshgoldeneagle Jul 20 '18 at 19:33

    This is no longer correct AFAICT. The link has moved to the bottom of the Properties tab! – Ian Grainger Apr 15 '19 at 9:20

I know this is a few months old but I inherited client and trying to do the same thing, but when I select the recovery services vaults in the azure portal, I only see the actual vaults, I don't see a backup section. but when I select one of the vaults is when I get presented with options but still no prepare infrastructure to re-download vault creds. now if I select properties under settings, I do get a section where I can download backup credentials. it is a file with name of vault and a .vaultcredentials file extension.

  • THANK YOU! The instructions are out of date it appears, as this is the only place I could find this! – Ian Grainger Apr 15 '19 at 9:21
