Once you have
VM role enabled with your subscription, you can start working on VM Role using
the step by step guide provided as below:
After finished creating your VHD for VMRole, and uploading using
CSUPLOAD script, you may following error:
Error: An error occurred trying to attach
to the VHD.
Details: The sector size of the physical disk on which the
virtual disk resides is not supported.
Note: This is your main error and other errors after it are just caused by this error so please do not give any consideration to them.
Reason: This error occurred because I was loading
the baseimage.VHD (as described in above csupload script)from external USB 3.0,
1.0 TB disk.
If I use other smaller size external
HDD this error did not produced. So the error could occur with certain HDD
which have incompatible sector size.
So far I do not have a list of compatible
sector size disk needed for successful upload.
After I moved baseimage.vhd to my local hard disk , I could
upload is successfully.
To solve your problem, please copy the VHD to your local disk
and then reference it properly in “-LiteralPath” parameter.
