  • Hi Ivan, looks like an invalid API version. Use the templates @ https://github.com/Azure/AzureStack-QuickStart-Templates. Or try to match the verssion with the API version available with your Azure Stack deployment. Also see the same page about ARM limitations in Azure Stack.

    If everything fails then you can always try the Februari release of Azure PowerShell which should be compatible with the AzureStack ARM version.
