    I've a vm role hosting my web application which call's rest management api's. I have generated a management certificate (.cer) in the vm and uploaded it to my subscription. The problem I have is when I call rest api's like "Create Virtual Machine Deployment" i get 403 (Forbidden) from the server.

    This is not happening when I am call the api's using windows forms application (Test app) on the vm role or when I m using my development enviroment (for dev i've generated and uploaded the certificate freom my machine).

    Any help is appreciated.

    Couple of questions:

    1. The api's that you are calling, are they hosted as a service? If so, is it WCF/asmx Service?
    2. On the server you are hosting it, are you using IIS? If so, what version?

    Thank you for replying.

    1. The api's are azure rest management api's.

    2. I am using IIS 7.0.

    Not sure why exactly that is happening. Run 

    aspnet_regiis -i

    in command prompt on the server and try again perhaps?
