Azure Cloud Service deployment error --- The certificate with thumbprint xyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzx was not found. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I had a cloud service application that I successfully deployed to a cloud service "ABC" through Visual Studio. Now I created a new cloud service "XYZ" and tried to deploy the same application to XYZ. If fails with the error "The certificate with thumbprint xyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzxyzx was not found."

    I checked that the certificate with this thumbrint is associated with cloud service "ABC",  I can confirm this through the dashboard / Azure portal.

    How do I locate this certificate so that I can upload it to XYZ cloud service?

  • Hi,

    If you have the copy of the certificate in pfx/cer format, you can upload the certificate in the "Certificates" section of the XYZ cloud service.

    In case, you don't have, the alternative is to set up the remote access of the ABC role instance(s) and log in to the server using RDP. Find the certificate from the certmgr or inetmgr and export it to pfx/cer format and reuse it again for the XYZ cloud service.

    Please check following link to see how to set up remote access for role instances.
