Azure Backup Client Fails with 0x07EF8

Mark Berry August 22, 2016

I’m testing Azure Backup client on a Server 2012 R2 Essentials machine. On this machine, I had two options:  an Essentials plugin and the standard agent. I tried the Essentials plugin but it uses the “old” (classic) Azure portal, plus the retention options were limited to 1-30 days, no weeks or months. So I removed the plugin and installed the standard Azure Backup client, following these instructions. However, it didn’t work out of the box.
