Manage vault credentials
Updated: January 30, 2015
Azure Recovery Services encompasses a set of Azure vaults that can be used to protect your organization from data loss and aid in continuity of operations. To associate an Azure vault with a computer or server, you use credentials.
Vaults are used to store and protect information that is specified as part of your recovery services configuration. Previously you had to use a x.509 v3 certificate to register your server with the backup vault, but now that has changed and you use credentials generated in the Azure portal to register your computer with the backup vault. If you are creating a new vault, you no longer use certificates. You must use credentials.
