Need to get registration key for Azure Site Recovery

Hi Experts,

We have a client that we set up with Azure Site Recovery. The agent needed an update on two Servers.
When the updates for the Azure Site Recovery Unified Setup was at step three, it was looking for the Registration key for both servers. They ones we have from initial setup, are too old according to the set up.

I cannot find on the Azure Portal to download a new key.

Where normally I would find a radio button on the 'server' window to download the key (like on another customer portal, it is not there on this customer.

Is there away to download the key via PowerShell (not and expert on PS) or would the area to download it be in another part of the Azure GUI/portal.

See attached

-Thanks

Hi Dr. Klahn,

'Needed' as in Azure portal says if the agent is not upgraded before 28th Feb, then the service will not work.

I am closing ticket as the ticket I logged with MS Partner network provided results.

Dear Partner,

Thanks for your patience. This is Matthew.

Based on my research, to set up the source environment, you add Hyper-V hosts to a Hyper-V site, download, and install the Azure Site Recovery Provider and the Azure Recovery Services agent, and register the Hyper-V site in the vault.
In Prepare Infrastructure, click Source.
Click +Hyper-V Site, and specify the name of the site created in the previous tutorial, ContosoHyperVSite.
Click +Hyper-V Server.
Download the vault registration key. You need this key to run Provider setup. The key is valid for five days after you generate it.


Please check if you can find the key in the area above. For more information, please check the link below:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/site-recovery/hyper-v-azure-tutorial

Also, you can check the link below to using the PowerShell to deploy the configure the ASR.

From the link above, we can see the following content:
#Generate and download a registration key for the new Hyper-V site
Install-ASRProvider -Vault $Vault -SiteName $SiteName -ServerFriendlyName $ServerFriendlyName -SiteIdentifier $HyperVSite.SiteIdentifier
Start-Sleep -Seconds 60
#Verify the registration completed successfully
Get-AzureRmSiteRecoveryServicesProvider -FriendlyName $ServerFriendlyName -Fabric (Get-AzureRmSiteRecoveryFabric -Name $HyperVSite.FriendlyName)

Hope the above information helps.

The agent needed an update on two Servers.

"Needed" -- to me -- means that the software was not functional without the update.  Is that the case?

If not, revert back to to the old configuration via the last full backup.  This will tide you over while investigating the possibilities.
