I'm trying to test out Azure Backup set up through the Azure Hybrid Services option in Windows Admin Center. When I get to the set up page, I get an error:

 

"Failed to get Microsoft Azure Recovery Services Vaults. Detailed error: The current subscription type is not permitted to perform operations on any provider namespace. Please use a different subscription."

 

I'm unable to change subscription from this window for some reason.

 

For the record, I am running WAC 1904.1. I am connected with my primary Azure account which has two subscriptions, one which is the limited one I get through Office 365 (access to Azure AD). The other one I use for all other services including Recovery Services, Azure Files, etc., so I know I have a subscription which supports the vaults Azure Backup needs.

 

I have confirmed that the latter of the two subscriptions is my default. I have also confirmed that an Azure user account without the "access to Azure AD" limited subscription can in fact use this second subscription to enable Azure Backup, but I need to use my primary Azure account.

 

Why can't I change the subscription at this page?
