The password used during the PMC deployment must be between 8 and 16 characters, and meet at least three of the following four rules:

  • Use of lowercase characters
  • Use of uppercase characters
  • Use of numbers (0-9)
  • Use of the following symbols:

    # % ^ & * - _ = [ ] { } | : ' , . ? / ~ ( )

 

Be sure to avoid use of the following symbols in the Azure deployment script, as this will break the deployment:
