West Europe DACPAC backup authentication issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a process to back up a DB to a storage account, I have a subscription we use as an NFT environment where the dB's are in North Europe and the back up process works perfectly.

    we have a second subscription that we use for SIT, this has the SQL servers in West Europe, this fails to backup the db's using the same process. we have a fall back server in the same subscription that is located in North Europe and this works fine.

    Is there an issue with the dacpac svc in West Europe?

    I am calling to this address


    I have tried numerous calls and they all fail when using the West Europe dac service, so I believe it can't be a code issue. is anybody else experiencing similar problems?

    the error response is

    Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Dac.Services.ServiceException:Unable to authenticate request;
