I'm trying to setup up Site Recovery in my Azure Recovery Services Vault. The plan is to have selected virtual machines replicate to a secondary region like Arizona or Texas. I created my vault (in secondary region), selected the source VM's to replicate, network settings, snapshot policy and when I go to finalize/submit everything for instantiation I get the following error: Create Service Principal 0 Failed to create service principal for automation account debxxx-rs-m93-asr-automationaccount.

I checked my permissions and I am a subscription owner so I'm not sure why the automation account can't create itself. If I go to my resource group I can see the automation account but it hasn't been setup as a "run as account". Any thoughts or suggestion on how to get this working would be very appreciated.
