Azure Virtual Desktop - DeploymentFailed - terminal provisioning state 'Failed'

Vaughn, Eric 20 Reputation points
Receive the following error when attempting to use the 'Quickstart' for Azure Virtual Desktop.  It passed validation before I hit the 'create' button, but approximately 5 minutes in, it stops and presents this: 

  "code": "DeploymentFailed",
  "target": "/subscriptions/xxxxx-xxx-xxxx-xxxxxx7/providers/Microsoft.Resources/deployments/AVDGettingStarted-41cf7367-ba54-4637-b241-2140a4980026-deploymen",
  "message": "At least one resource deployment operation failed. Please list deployment operations for details. Please see for usage details.",
  "details": [
      "code": "ResourceDeploymentFailure",
      "target": "/subscriptions/xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxxxxxx/resourceGroups/avd-deployment/providers/Microsoft.Resources/deployments/easy-button-inputvalidation-job-linked-template",
      "message": "The resource write operation failed to complete successfully, because it reached terminal provisioning state 'Failed'."

That's cryptic and of zero help to me, so hoping the community experts can assist in interpreting.  Thank you!

    Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft Q&A forum.

    The error message isn't very descriptive, but here are some potential causes and troubleshooting steps you can take:

    • ensure that the account you're using to deploy the AVD resources has the necessary permissions to create and manage resources in the target subscription and resource group. the account should have at least the "Contributor" role assigned at the subscription or resource group level
    • If you have existing resources or deployments in the target resource group, there may be conflicts or dependencies that cause the deployment to fail. try deploying the AVD resources in a new, empty resource group.
    • Ensure that the network configuration (virtual network, subnets, network security groups) specified in the deployment template is valid and does not conflict with existing resources
