JoinDomain VMExtensionProvisioningError when deploying WVD (aka Conflict Error)

Deploying WVD Fails with a conflict error and when clicking for more information it presents a conflict and not much else that is useful by way of toubleshooting. Hopefully this helps someone else as it had me head scratching for a little while.. When creating the Host Pool, make sure that you haven't made the fatal error of using the Azure Active Directory Credential INSTEAD of the Local AD Domain Credential.  i.e do not use USER@m365xxxxx.onmicrosoft.com to domain join, even if it links back to the domain - this is where the conflict arrises.    Instead, use your full internal domain UPN.  USER@prefix.domain.co.uk  Re-deploy your same configuration and you should find it goes through now without any problems. Additional findings.... Albeit my mistake above was an easy one, it does appear the error is directly linked to the domain join process. If you go into your resource groups, locate the session host and MSTSC directly to it.  Try the domain join pr

Sophos Anti Virus not updating (could not contact server)

I found quite a neat little trick, whether or not the following technical processes are by design I dont know but I assure you this has worked for me loads of times.

If you see Sophos Anti Virus with a red shield in it, first thing I used to do is rename the Cache folder in Program Files and then click update. Job done, it updates we can all go home with a smile on our faces.

What I noticed recently was that this didnt fix the problem at all, it generally made a bit more of a mess.

So, if you find that the Cache folder has an update in there (Usually 68Mb+) Navigate to: C:\Program Files\Sophos\AutoUpdate\cache\savxp and click Install Sophos Anti Virus, this will run you through a quick WinInstaller and then update the program.

You will probably have to reboot at this point, you can choose to reboot, usually I just log off ;) (As im sure most IT pro's do)

Finally just re-enter the update credentials into the Sophos program and re-check for updates.

Works like a charm


Did I solve your problem? Buy me a virtual beer by clicking on a Google ad :). Thanks!

  1. "Another version of this product is already installed. Installation of this version cannot continue... Add/Remove Programs..." OK I can probably use my ingenuity at this point - but its going to take a bigger logical hammer ! This laptop has been asleep for a year as the m key doesnt work ...or the apostrophe !
