  1. You enabled two-factor authentication in Cloud console 
  2. Acronis Cyber Backup/Protect software is installed as on-premises deployment
  3. You configure backup to Cloud Storage. Backup fails with the following error:
    The credentials for location <account> are not specified.
    Failed to authorize the user.


The credentials for the cloud storage are incorrect or you do not have an active cloud storage subscription


On-premises deployment of Acronis Cyber Protect 15 and Acronis Cyber Backup 12.5 does not support backing up to Cloud Storage if two-factor authentication is enabled.

This feature is considered for implementation in future versions of the product.


There are two possible workarounds in this case:

  1. Disable two-factor authentication in Cloud console
  2. Consider switching to Cloud deployment where two-factor authentication is supported: see User Guide for more information about deployment types.

Backup to other destinations is not affected by two-factor authentication.
