Azure Stack TP 1.1 Multi-Compartment Network Proxy Service

Since Azure Stack TP 1.1 i have an issue deploying Azure Stack. After a while it fails with the error below:
MultiCompartmentNetworkProxyServiceError
Service 'Multi-Compartment Network Proxy Service (MultiCompartmentNetworkProxyS
ervice)' cannot be stopped due to the following error: Cannot stop MultiCompart
mentNetworkProxyService service on computer '.'.
    + CategoryInfo          : CloseError: (System.ServiceProcess.ServiceContro 
   ller:ServiceController) [Restart-Service], ServiceCommandException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CouldNotStopService,Microsoft.PowerShell.Command 
   s.RestartServiceCommand
    + PSComputerName        : xRPVM.AzureStack.local

I want to point out that i am not running all official requirement for the Azure Stack Deployment, since i am not booting from the included .vhdx file because i am a bit short on disk space. So this issue might not occur if you follow all the rules… 🙄

But since this issue took me a while to overcome and it’s the second time this happens I though I write a quick blog about it.

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.

Microsoft Azure Stack

Yes! Last Friday the first public preview of Microsoft Azure Stack (MAS) TP1 was released. Twitter was going crazy and I saw a lot of downloads and deploys passing by. I was also blessed with some hardware from my company that meets the specs for an Azure Stack TP1 deployment.

So I can test and deploy MAS to! Whoohoe! 🙂

My physical host was installed with Windows Server 2016 TP4 and disabled all Nics but one. Installed all Windows updates including the specific KB3124262

After that run powershell as an admin. Give the powershell command and of you go!

DeployAzureStack.ps1 –verbose

Then after several reboots and hours of waiting the deployment has finished!
