  • Hello Eric,

    Thank you for posting here.

    Could you confirm you are running PowerShell in an admin context?

    Please check the Step-by-Step instructions video demo by Charles on Microsoft Azure Stack POC Deployment Tutorial.

  • Hi Pradeep,

    Yes, PowerShell is run in an admin context as it is shown in the image posted in earlier post.

    The URL to the video you have posted is the video I have been following and I am stuck at 23:19 mins into the video.

  • Hi,

    The links you have provided don't seem like a work around to me, rather the same thing documented differently.

    The steps however to me, appear the same.

    I went ahead and did a complete fresh re-installation, following the steps in your URL labelled as Azure Stack Part One.

    The only thing I question is the pass-through you speak of on RAID controllers. The only option for pass-through is an alternative terminology on the raid controller listed as "write-through". I have enabled this on all disks and it has made no impact on the outcome.

    I ended up with the same result as before, same error.

    Thus I am still stuck as I am unable to deploy this on a DELL R900.

  • Hi Eric,

    We have created workspace to upload the log files for analysis. Could you please upload following logs from "$env:ProgramData\Microsoft\AzureStack\Logs"

    You would have received an email with credentials for accessing the workspace.

  • Hi,

    We anticipate that this bug will be fixed in the next TP release.

    As an interim solution, please repave and redeploy Azure Stack.

  • Hi,

    I am encountering the same error.

    Tried it four times.

    Hardware :

    Server: HP ProLiant DL580 G5 

    RAM: 256 GB

    CPU: 4 Xeon 7450 hex-core

    RAID Controller : HP SmartArray P400, All five disks(250GB)  are in RAID-0 mode

    Two Gigabit Ethernet NIC's: One is disabled via device manager

    Any additional debugging steps I could follow ?

    Or just wait for the next TP release ?
