    Troubleshooting

    Your password contains special characters, and you receive this error while providing correct credentials:

    1. Encode the password into base64 format: https://www.base64encode.org/
    2. Specify the encoded password using the -base64 (for version 7.5) and -b or --base64 (for version 7.8 and 7.9) parameter. For a Windows agent, it would be:
      • Acronis Backup Cloud 7.8, 7.9: register_agent.exe -o register -t cloud -a https://cloud.acronis.com -u <account> -b -p <encoded password>
      • Acronis Backup Cloud 7.5: register_msp_mms.exe register https://cloud.acronis.com <account> -base64 <encoded password>
