    Hello,

    I'm trying to set up a scale set with 3 VMs through Powershell.

    I'm executing this script: New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment -ResourceGroupName $rgName -TemplateFile 'C:\Users\victor\Downloads\Ny\Ny\azuredeploy.json' -TemplateParameterFile 'C:\Users\victor\Downloads\Ny\Ny\azuredeploy.parameters.json' -Verbose # -Mode Complete

    And the Json files are listed below:
    I get the error message "Unable to update password"
    Everything goes fine until the VMs are abot to join the domain. I don't get it, i even tried to set up a VM manually and executed a local script telling i to join the domain and it worked flawless, so i don't know what the difference should be going through scaleset. Please help

    I've been working with Victor on this, and yesterday he found the solution.
    The correct solution for this is to change the parameter domainUsername to contoso.local\\windows like so:

    {
      "$schema": "http://schema.management.azure.com/schemas/2015-01-01/deploymentParameters.json#",
      "contentVersion": "1.0.0.0",
      "parameters": {
        "existingVNETName": {
          "value": "RDS-MASTER"
        },
        "existingSubnetName": {
          "value": "RDS"
        },
        "vmSize": {
          "value": "Standard_A1"
        },
    	"ouPath": {
          "value": "OU=RDSH,DC=contoso,DC=local"
        },
        "windowsOSVersion": {
          "value": "2012-R2-Datacenter"
        },
        "domainToJoin": {
          "value": "contoso.local"
        },
        "domainUsername": {
          "value": "contoso.local\\windows"
        },
        "domainPassword": {
          "value": "*************"
        },
        "domainJoinOptions": {
          "value": 3
        },
        "vmAdminUsername": {
          "value": "windows"
        },
        "vmAdminPassword": {
          "value": "************"
        },
        "dnsLabelPrefix": {
          "value": "RDSH" 
        },
    	"instanceCount": {
          "value": 2
        }
      }
    }

    Victor, for future reference it is probably easier to help if you also post the Configure.ps1 from the DSC.zip-file.
    Now we move on to the next 1000 steps to get this project to work properly!
