  • Hi Evan,

    That error comes from Azure Batch which means your Batch cluster runs into some kind of scheduling error due to fail to download some files from storage. You can first verify if your dotnetactivity dll package was accessible as the first step for troubleshooting. If no issues there, then you can try switch to a new pool to workaround the issue or you can file a ticket to Azure Search team to help further troubleshooting your Batch cluster.  Hope this helps.

  • Hi Yitao and Evan - I am having the exact same issue by following the instructions on that same tutorial.  I know it's been a while but were you able to resolve this issue based on Yitao's recommendation?  I just dropped and create d a new pool to no avail. :-(

    I thought I would check with you before opening up a ticket with the Azure team.

  • Meh! just had exact same thing.

    You have to use a general purpose blog storage account not a blob storage account.
