When you have to manually install the Azure Site Recovery agent you must provide the Passphrase. In this blogpost I describe how you can find the Passphrase.
- Sign in to your configuration server, and then open a command prompt window as an administrator.
- To change the directory to the bin folder, execute the command cd %ProgramData%\ASR\home\svsystems\bin
- To generate the passphrase file, execute genpassphrase.exe -v > MobSvc.passphrase.
- Your passphrase will be stored in the file located at %ProgramData%\ASR\home\svsystems\bin\MobSvc.passphrase.
Open this file using your favourite editor and you have found your passphrase. Good luck!
