Last week i finally got my first Azure Stack TP2 deployment completed after weeks of error’s as a blogged before. After that i needed to redeploy several times and ran into different issue’s every time.
This time it stopped at step 0.20. After retrying the deployment with:
Invoke-EceAction -RolePath Cloud -ActionType Deployment -Start 0.20 -Verbose
It stopped at the same error. See below for te error message.

The MAS-BGPNAT01 VM was accessible and i didn’t notice any errors in relation to the error above in the eventlogs. After a reboot of the MAS-BGPNAT01 VM I started the deployment from step 1, without the -start parameter:
Invoke-EceAction -RolePath Cloud -ActionType Deployment -Verbose
And it got past step 0.20! I think this also has to something to do with time settings because I see lots of time differences every time on my vm’s and host during deployment. I’m not saying this is really a TP2 issue rather then an issue with my host or something else, but I am just spreading the info on the internet so people can try it and maybe get past the steps they can’t get past.
