Want to get a better idea where your Local Business Data (LBD) / On Prem deployment is when you are deploying a new package to it during servicing? Here are a few areas to check.

Assets

First, once a package has been prepared and downloaded, you can check what is happening with it by finding the orchestrator that has the "ArtifactsManagerPkg" installed on it. In the Service Fabric Explorer, expand the orchestrator nodes then LocalAgent and look for the package.

Having trouble deploying a 7.3 environment on prem?

When creating the on-premise connector or creating an environment to deploy, want to know where to source all of the values you are being asked for? There are some scripts to help.

Creating The On-premises Connector

Included with the scripts to setup the service fabric cluster is this one:

.\Get-AgentConfiguration.ps1 -ConfigurationFile .\ConfigTemplate.xml

This gives a nice table of output with almost everything you need to create the on-premise connector.

What should you do if you encounter this error when setting up an on-prem instance?
