    The Discussion

      Nice video and Azure Stack looks like a very interesting product. Unfortunately, the many references in the video to support don't provide the assistance necessary. I tried installing Azure Stack over two weeks ago and ran into an error during the deployment process. I posted a comment about the error on the Azure Stack forum just as this video suggests and I have yet - over two weeks later - received a single piece of advice. What do I need to do in order to get this working?
