First Errors in Azure Stack Deployment #MAS #AzureStack #Azure #MASCUG Microsoft Azure Stack POC is ready to deploy   5 comments

Playing with the AzureStack deployment is no picknick there is a Pre-check but you must have the perfect machine to deploy the Azure Stack Bits. So I tweaked the scripts a bit. this is the logical architecture of the Azure Stack POC and its components. all running on a single Hyper-v host.

But even then something can go wrong. As shown below some errors are highlighted.

Check disks failed. At least 3 disks of the same bus type (RAID/SAS/SATA) and with CanPool attribute equals true are
required.   ( I added some other Storage also )

Cannot bind argument to parameter ‘PackagePath’ because it is an empty string  ( used a variable setting before running the script )


Welcome to the Microsoft Azure Stack POC Deployment!
There are several prerequisites checks to verify that your machine meets all the minimum requirements for deploying Microsoft A
zure Stack POC.
All of the prerequisite checks passed.
Please enter the password for the built-in administrator. The password must meet the Azure Active Directory password complexity
Password: **********
Confirm password: **********
Setup system admin account
Please sign in to your Azure account in the Microsoft Azure sign in window.
Press any key to continue …



But after Concurring All the Pre-Requirements you are ready to go Or not ?

During the Deployment I had this error :  Method "NewTriggerByStartup" not found
This seams an updated Powershell module is in place and I have a bug in my build. After some digging in the Powershell modules I managed to fix this.


Microsoft Azure Stack POC is ready to deploy. Continue?
[Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"): y

The real fix is this mofcomp C:\Windows\System32\wbem\SchedProv.mof

and after Some digging I find already a uservoice post on this issue. So vote for this


I must say the scripts are awesome lots of handy stuff in there.  I did the Next Next Finish setup to see what I could expect and how to Build this in a not default environment. SO no single server.

That’s All For now.

  1. This is interesting but you didn’t provide any information on host to address the first problem (canpool=false). I am seeing that problem now and the CannotPoolReason is “Insufficient Capacity”. But the disks (all SATA, 2 being 3T and one 4T) have lots of space available. According to the docs I have seen, the drives need to have a minimum of 5G available ans these drives all have a couple of terabyte available. So, what is the work around?
