Azure Terraform Bootstrap - cant get this working

L1 Bithead

I am trying to create a vm-series FW in Azure using Terraform. I am following this example:

But I get a similar error to this one in the bootstrap status and log.

I have tried using the same parameters via the marketplace ARM template  and the bootstrap completes successfully so I think my bootstrap file share is set up correct. 

My snippet of Terraform code looks like this. 

os_profile {
computer_name = var.FirewallVmName
admin_username = var.adminUsername
admin_password = var.adminPassword
custom_data = join(

Any pointers are appreciated. Even the CLI commands I need to view what parameters actually get passed into the Vm-series would help.

It looks like a network problem.  Could it be route reachability to the bootstrap fileshare?  I'd suggest troubleshooting the network access from the management port once the instance comes online.  


The docs for the module are located here:

I tried everything on the connectivity front. The FW doesn't seem to have any connectivity issues out the mgmt port. 

I also used the exact same parameters and network config for VM-series via the marketplace template. And it worked perfectly.
