ASDK - unable to set up subscriptions, plans or VMs after install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    in our first ASDK deployment following the ASDK documentation we were successful up to the point of registering Azure Stack:

    [...]                        "AzureKeyVaultServiceEndpointResourceId":  "https://vault.azure.net",

        "Subscription":  {
                             "Id":  "78ea2570-446a-43d4-b708-ab98d8a60588",

                             "CurrentStorageAccountName":  null,
                             "ExtendedProperties":  {
                                                        "Environment":  "AzureCloud",
                                                        "Account":  "denis.jedig@th-koeln.de",
                                                        "Tenants": "35f8765e-cb47-4d80-afaf-42ff7060fddf"

    But contrary to what I would expect after reading the documentation, the adminportal does not list additional Marketplace items beyond what has been provided with the stock installation. I also am unable to create new subscriptions or plans as the corresponding actions are not showing up in the adminportal, so we suspect that something went wrong during installation or registration:

    Adminportal - New - Tenant Offers + Plans is missing

    Adminportal - subscriptions - Default subscription is missing, no way to add a new one

    Test-AzureStack returned with all passes shortly before registration:

    I already tried unregistering and re-registering using Remove-AzsRegistration / Set-AzsRegistration. The AzureStack-<GUID> Registration object is appearing in my MS Azure Portal (pay-as-you-go subscription) alongside the azurestack Resource Group. I really cannot see what might have gone wrong here.

    As a side note, we were experiencing some initial configuration troubles as AzS-BGPNAT01 was unable to retreive an IP address from the external network via DHCP. We are using a (non-Microsoft) IPAM solution and our DHCP servers are configured to hand out addresses to registered devices only. We resolved this by registering the BGPNAT01's MAC address with our IPAM. The original NAT configuration made during the installation process has been using the APIPA address space for ExternalIPInterfaceAddressPrefix, so we also had to reconfigure NAT on BGPNAT01 using the New-NetNat Powershell Cmdlet.

    Kind regards,

  • Oh, I might have done a better effort on searching this forum:

    According to this post I should be using CloudAdmin for logging into the adminportal:

    In Azure Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) deployed environments running ASDK Build 20171122.1, the azurestack\azurestackadmin account is no longer the owner of the Default Provider Subscription. Instead of logging into the Admin portal / adminmanagement endpoint with the azurestack\azurestackadmin, you can use the azurestack\cloudadmin account, so that you can manage and use the Default Provider Subscription.

    After logging in using the CloudAdmin account, everything seems to work as documented.
