Update Azure Stack Development Kit in Nested Hyper-V

Since the Azure Stack Development Kit Version 1804 (Release Build Number 20180513.1) you get additional errors when you deploy Azure Stack in an Hyper-V VM. This short blogpost is about the additional modifications you have to make to the CloudBuilder.VHDX to get a successful deployment.

Follow exactly the description of the Blogpost "Installing Azure Stack Development Kit in a Hyper-V Nested VM". In the Chapter "Modify the CloudBuilder.VHDX" you have to change two lines in the ACSBlob.psm1 file (which is also included in the Microsoft.AzureStack.Solution.Deploy.CloudDeployment.x.x.x.nupkg):

The full path to the ACSBlob.psm1 file is:

  • X:/content/Roles/Roles/ACS/ACSBlob.psm1

In the file you search for the lines (arround 415):

  • $acsBlobLogPath = "D:\AzureStack\Logs\ACS\blob"
  • $acsBlobDumpPath = 'D:\AzureStack\CrashDumps\blob'

and modify them to:

  • $acsBlobLogPath = Join-Path -Path $env:ProgramData -ChildPath "Microsoft\AzureStack\Logs\ACS\blob"
  • $acsBlobDumpPath = Join-Path -Path $env:ProgramData -ChildPath "Microsoft\AzureStack\CrashDumps\blob"

A big thanks goes to Elmar Szych you shared this solution with me.

    In ASDK 2102 the changes mentioned here are not needed any more. I recommend to add an additional VHDX as Data Disk “D:” and format it as well as extending the CLOUDBUILDER.VHDX to 160GB before running the ASDK Installer. #Iwork4Dell
