An error "Failed to setup a field encryption key" and/or "Unable to determine host role" is returned when configuring SecureData for Azure
An error is returned when configuring the SecureData appliance for Azure stating one or both of the following:
"Failed to setup a field encryption key"
"Unable to determine host role"
If either or both of the above errors are displayed, check the /opt/vsmgmt/logs/console.log on the Management Console server. If you see a message similar to the following, it means that an empty key_version tag is defined:
"Secret:Setup field encryption key in Azure|8|description=Failed to setup or fetch field encryption key with Azure. Azure key version is empty."
Remove the empty key_version tag and try again. Azure will automatically fetch a valid key_version once it connects to the key vault, and will then populate the tag.
