Azure Stack TP2 Deployment Issue step 0.20

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.

Remove Azure Stack TP1 to install TP1.1

If you tried out Azure Stack Preview 1 and want to play arround with TP 1.1 release you have to remove the current Azure Stack deployment. I was unable to find a documented uninstall (if somebody does please leave a comment 🙂 ) so i just deleted everything.

I have a one node setup so here is what I did:

  • Turn of all VM’s
  • Deleted all cluster roles;
  • Removed the VM’s;
  • Destroyed the cluster;
  • Removed the storage pool and its volumes;
  • Removed my node from the azurestack.local domain and rebooted;
  • Removed the virtual switch;
  • Uninstalled the Microsoft Azure Service Fabric from my host.
