When deploying a service package, a "Waiting for role to start" message is shown indefinitely
This bug has been detected and a cause seems to be that the cloud drive container (specified on the "driveContainer" setting on the service configuration file) is not being created at runtime.
This line is commented on the MountCloudDrive() function because a previous General Protection Fault on the Azure library that is under investigation.
Trace.TraceInformation("Mounting cloud drive - Creating VHD container if not exists");
To workaround this issue, you can manually create the blob drive container with a tool like the "Azure Storage Explorer". The default container name used (as is specified in the service configuration file) is "azure-accelerator-drives".
Create this container as a private container.
