Azure Connector for WAP(Pheonix) fails to create VM “Error in CheckCheckVmCreation()”

 

Another quick one (becoming a habit..)

 

In deploying and testing Azure Connector for Windows Azure Pack found here, deploying a virtual machine can sometimes fail with an obscure status message of:

 

“Error in CheckCheckVmCreation()”

This is because the parameters of the resource creation are rejected. In the below example, I faced this because my lab password did not meet the required complexities.

Running the the process using the same account in Azure, I am faced with a minimum password complexity error

Change my password to meet the ARM complexity requirements and the VM creates successfully

Happy hybrid cloud deploying!
