AzureStack TP1 released! – part II

PART I:AzureStack TP1 released!

Well, I hope everyone got their bits downloaded. Let’s continue with the deployment of AzureStack in our environment. I assume you have installed the host with Windows Server 2016 TP4. copy the downloaded Azure Stack bits to the host and op a PowerShell command as Administrator. Now run the DeployAzureStack.ps1 –Verbose:

It will run some checks…

…and then it asks for local administrator passwords to use in the deployment. Be aware that the password must meet the complexity that meets the complexity in your Azure AD requirements:

Now hit enter to get the Azure AD login screen. if you get IE warnings add the URL to the trusted sites or disable IE ESC.

image

If you have multiple AD Directories assigned to the account you are logged in with you will be asked which directory to use:

When the Azure AD login is successful the final checks will be performed and the the latest question will rise. Hit Y:

Now it will start the installation of Azure Stack. It run some checks, will reboot couple of times…

…and finally …

Now log in to the ClientVM with the icon on your desktop. Once you are logged in on the ClientVM you see 2 icons on your desktop. One is the Azure Stack Portal. Open the portal and login with the administrator you specified during the installation. Now lets create a plan:

image

Click on New –> Plan –> Give it a name and select the services you want to offer in this plan. Then click on OK and the plan will be created. No we need to create an offer:

image

Click on New –> Offer –> Give it a name and select the Base plan we created earlier (Poc-Plan). Click on Select and then create. Now make for this POC both the Offer and the plan Public:

image

If you can’t find the plans and offers go to all Resources from the start page of the Azure Stack Portal:

image

Now start an inprivate browser and login as tenant user. If you haven’t created a extra test user in Azure AD create one and log in. Once logged in you will notice that you don’t have any subscription assigned to your account:

image

Click on the Get a Subscription, Give it a name and select the offer we created earlier:

image

And we are good to go!! Now you can create Storage, Networks and VMs:

Have fun playing around in TP1!

      HI, That should be good, can you check the log in C:programdatamicrosoftazurestack. Maybe add the error and move the topic to http://aka.ms/azurestackforum where other peers and product team can help you locate the issue
