Error 500 on Windows Azure Pack (WAPack) Admin Portal


I’ve been playing around with Windows Azure Pack and I’ve deleted all self-signed certificates from the personal store. Apparently I’ve missed some configuration and WAP{ was still using them. After deleting the certificates when I’ve opened the Admin Portal I’ve got white page with Error 500 displayed on it.

To get clear description of the issue I’ve opened the WAP event logs and the following errors were logged:

The resolution was simple: I’ve run the run the configuration site of WAP once again with the same SQL credentials and passphrase. The deleted self-signed certificates were restored in the personal store, Admin portal was running once again and no data was lost.
