Unable to connect to recovery vault

Installing Microsoft Azure Backup Server when WPAD is in the mix

So I recently hit an issue when trying to install Azure Backup Server on a Windows 2012 R2 server in an environment that used WPAD. Azure Backup Server allows you to backup your on-premise infrastructure to local disk storage while also providing the ability to backup to an Azure Recovery Services Vault, allowing offsite long-term retention.
