Ever got this error while trying to do something in Powershell? I got a few ones this week, especially when dealing with Azure ARM cmdlets that basically stacks other cmdlets.
New-AzureRmVirtualNetworkGatewayConnection : Long running operation failed with status 'Failed'. At line:1 char:1 + New-AzureRmVirtualNetworkGatewayConnection -Name "CONN-US-BR-GW" -Res ... + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : CloseError: (:) [New-AzureRmVirt...tewayConnection], CloudException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.Azure.Commands.Network.NewAzureVirtualNetworkGatewayConnectionCommand
There’s an easy way to dig into this to know what’s really happening. Simply enable debugging:
$DebugPreference = "Continue"
Now you should have details of this error and hopefully, fix whatever is wrong. Of course, you could also debug each cmdlet without enabling it for the entire session using -Debug parameter.
