Creation of the secret can also be performed using the Azure Command Line Interface instead of PowerShell. Instead of using the PS command "New-AzureRmDataLakeAnalyticsCatalogSecret" you can use the CLI command "azure datalake analytics catalog secret create".

CLI syntax: azure datalake analytics catalog secret create "myADLAAccount" "myADLADatabase" "tcp://"

I've followed your steps and it's working like a charm until last week everything stopped working and I can't create an external data source anymore I got login failed for user contosoadmin, nothing changed from our end. Are you aware of any changes to the backend.

This post just saved me. Got me unblocked for trying to run CLI command "az dla catalog credential create". The big help was you made it clear the expected database to name is a Data Lake DB, and not the source Azure SQL database. All other articles/docs I found led me to think otherwise. So, a big THANK YOU to you!

Hi Jorg,

for some reason I cannot seem to create a catalog secret. You should enter the azure data analytics account name right? It keeps on telling me to re login. Any ideas what this can be?
