There is a known IaaS deployment issue in the preview release and a fix is already in the works. Here is the message that was posted in Yammer:

-----

Known deployment issue for release 10.0.21

Application: 10.0.960.20

Platform: 7.0.6129.15

When deploying release 10.0.21 on IaaS, you may receive the following deployment warning:

Warning code

95017

Warning message

Script [SetupDiagnostics] failed execution against VM

The deployment will work despite the warning, however, the following known issues may occur in Lifecycle Services (LCS):

  • On the Environment monitoring page, the View detailed version information link will not appear, so you won’t be able to see the specific versions of the modules installed in your environment. Without this data, subsequent hotfixes might fail because the process that applies hotfixes uses this data to verify that the module version prerequisites are met. Because it’s not possible to use the PEAP/Preview build in production or apply hotfixes, the impact should be minimal.
  • The Performance Metrics and Index Analysis tabs on the Environment Monitoring page under SQL Insights won’t display any data. All other Environment Monitoring features will work as intended.

The Full System Diagnostics page will not be accessible. The associated data about the status of the nightly collector runs and issues detected by its rules also won’t show up.
