Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services: When trying to configure inputs, why do I see error "REST ERROR[1021]: Fail to decrypt the encrypted credential information - not well-formed"?

I am trying to configure inputs for the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services (Add Azure Storage Account) and continue to receive the following error message: REST ERROR[1021]: Fail to decrypt the encrypted credential information - not well-formed

I uninstalled the add-on, logged in as the administrator to reinstall but still continue to see the same error message. I am also running Splunk Enterprise 6.4.1 on Windows 2012 R2.

Has anyone else seen this?

Thank you.

passwords.conf file may have unsupported character or corrupted password. *** Note the passwords.conf could be located in a different app. For us, we could not configure any new account for the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services. Deleting the passwords.conf in "Splunk_TA_snow" (on the deployment server) fixed the issue for the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services.

I believe we installed the app on a new HF box and the issue resolved itself. It was either conflicting with some other app or the instance of Splunk I was using was dirty and needed to be rebuilt.
