While connecting to Azure using Powershell with Connect-AzAccount cmdlet I was receiving below error. As troubleshooting steps I tried to update/install Az module from online Microsoft PowerShell repository with -Force and -AllowClobber parameters, tried to Import Module Az, Az.Accounts on PowerShell v5.1 and 7, but with no success and error persisted.
Connect-AzAccount Connect-AzAccount : The 'Connect-AzAccount' command was found in the module 'Az.Accounts', but the module could not be loaded. For more information, run 'Import-Module Az.Accounts'. At line:1 char:1 + Connect-AzAccount +~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (Connect-AzAccount:String) , CommandNotFoundException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CouldNotAutoloadMatchingModule
I tried using old cmdlet Login-AzAccount but I receiving some other error.
Login-AzAccount Connect-AzureRmAccount: Could not load type 'System.Security.Cryptography.SHA256Cng' from assembly 'System.Core, Version 184.108.40.206, Culture neutral, PublicKeyToken b77a5c561934e089'.
In the last I figured out this issue was due to conflict with old AzureRm module exist and new Az module. I uninstalled AzureRm module with below command, I uninstalled it from Powershell v7 and Powershell 5.1 version.
Uninstall-AzureRm WARNING: Running this cmdlet in PowerShell Core will only remove the modules from PowerShell Core. Please rerun this cmd let in a PowerShell 5.1 session to remove the modules from PowerShell 5.1.
After removal of old modules, I imported Az Module and tested the Connect-AzAccount cmdlet it redirected me to url of Microsoft Azure log in page, After authentication login was successful.
Import-Module -Name Az Connect-AzAccount
