Question

Hi All,

  • First I used the global admin account to provision the VM which was successful.
  • Later I uploaded a Ubuntu image to portal and tried to provision a VM using this image. This failed with a message saying

           "Failed to achieve desired power state"

  • I also tried to deploy VM under Template Deployment at the portal. Here also it is failing with the above message

If there is a work-around to solve this issue , please suggest.

Thank you in advance...

Hi Darren,

What Ubuntu version are you using, and how was the image created before upload?

Thanks,

Anjay

Hi Anjay,

Thank you for replying.

The Ubuntu version used was 14.04.

Downloaded the vhd.zip from the link provided on the Azure Stack Documentation under "Deploy Linux virtual machines on Azure Stack".

Regards,

Darren

Hi Darren,

Can you give me the exact filename of the .vhd.zip that you downloaded? Also, what user account (global admin, tenant account, etc.) were the Marketplace and Template deployments were run from? 

Thanks,

Anjay

Hi Anjay,

Below is the complete filename of the .vhd.zip that was downloaded :

            ubuntu-14.04-LTS-microsoft_azure_stack-20160628-7.vhd.zip

I used the global admin  for the Marketplace and the tenant account for the Template deployments.

Regards,

Darren

Hi Darren,

I would suggest removing the image through the portal, and then using the Add-VMImage cmdlet from this repository.

Thanks,

Anjay
