Azure PowerShell- No certificate was found in the certificate store with thumbprint Error

Hello Everybody,

While i am trying to assign static IP for an Azure Virtual machine i tried to use Azure Power shell to do this, I import the AzurePublishSettingFile, after that when i tried to execute the Command Get-AzureVM, it gave me an error:

Get-AzureVM : No certificate was found in the certificate store with thumbprint Error

To be honest, this is the first time i faced this issue, and there this no logic in this error, since as we know once you get the AzurePublishSettingFile you should connect to your account without any issue.

After did some searches in this issue, i found an article that mention a strange solution but it’s work perfect, let’s try it:

1- Navigate to the C:\Users\<YouUserName>\AppData\Roaming\Windows Azure Powershell

You must show hidden files from folder option tool in control panel to see the AppData folder since it’s hidden by default.

2- Delete all files in windows azure Powershell folder:

Before delete:

After Delete:

3- Close Azure Powershell windows and re-run it again, if you dont close the windows you will face the same error and you must delete all files in windows azure poweshell folder again, after that execute the commands again as shown below:

It’s work like a magic 🙂
