Description

The Restore-AzKeyVaultCertificate cmdlet creates a certificate in the specified key vault from a backup file. This certificate is a replica of the backed-up certificate in the input file and has the same name as the original certificate. If the key vault already contains a certificate by the same name, this cmdlet fails instead of overwriting the original certificate. If the backup contains multiple versions of a certificate, all versions are restored. The key vault that you restore the certificate into can be different from the key vault that you backed up the certificate from. However, the key vault must use the same subscription and be in an Azure region in the same geography (for example, North America). See the Microsoft Azure Trust Center (https://azure.microsoft.com/support/trust-center/) for the mapping of Azure regions to geographies.
