  • It looks like you're intending to configure Offline backup of files and folders and this requires you to install Azure PowerShell on the computer running Azure Backup agent. See the prerequisites list and the machine should've Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and above. Check the FAQ link.

  • I have exactly the same issue. All the prerequisites are met, but I can't figure out this problem.

    I'm running W2K8 R2 SP1, .NET 4.7.2, Powershell 5.1, Azure powershell module installed.

  • The error message isn't helpful and without further investigation it is hard to point the root cause of the issue. I strongly recommend connecting with Azure technical support professional for a 1:1 to discuss this further to understand the blocker and find a fix.

  • I am having the same issue on Windows Server 2012 R2, with the latest MARS Agent. I have verified that Azure PowerShell is installed (version 2.8.0), as are the other prerequisites. I've been working on this for a couple of days, and Azure support has not been able to provide an answer.
