Hi @Samuelparker,

 

1. Make sure the machine to install data gateway meet the minimum requirements.

2.  Please run the latest on-premise data gateway installer as administrator.

3. Please reboot the machine.

4. Check if the environment has Proxy. Follow this article to troubleshoot: Firewall or Proxy.

Did you solve this?  I'm having the same problem.

Unfortunately not - I’ve asking Microsoft about it and they haven’t gone back to me. It’s stoping me using the azure platform and costing them money.

Hi @Samuelparker@mhambalek,

 

I have sent the collected log to senior engineers to investigate this issue. Will let you know when I get the information.

I got it fixed after installing it on a non-domain PC and opening the relevant ports on the firewall.  Problem solved.
