Hi Umesh,

Im the PM for CF Dev - you are using the legacy PCF Dev plugin - please use the latest version the new CF Dev that uses native hypervisors instead of virtual box for virtualization

You can get this version if you uninstall the legacy pcf dev plugin 

`cf uninstall-plugin pcfdev`

and then install the latest version of cf dev

`cf install-plugin cfdev`

As Frederic mentioned earlier in the chain - this tool is intended to run on a local machine, not an Azure VM.  However, in theory it should work on an Azure VM if you configure the VM with 4 cores and a generous amount of RAM (64 GB +) and also configure it to use nested VMs ( so it can use native hypervisors. 

We have not seen this setup work on our team - but you may be able to get it to work. Let us know.

pcfdev is aimed at running in VirtualBox on your desktop. I don't think it is going to work when trying to install in another VM.
