trying to configure SharePoint 2016, getting "System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

Here is the relevant log. SQL server on a different box. single server farm. based on https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt723354(v=office.16).aspx with 2 Azure servers in a test domain. I added the farm admin to SQL (dbowner) and I can see the SharePoint_Config db was created but I still get this error:

07/28/2016 21:36:05 16 INF The parameter localserverrole is chosen, so returning the value as SingleServerFarm 07/28/2016 21:36:06 16 ERR Task configdb has failed with an unknown exception 07/28/2016 21:36:06 16 ERR Exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPServer.StaticProvision(SPConfigurationDatabase configurationDatabase) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPFarm.Join(Boolean skipRegisterAsDistributedCacheHost, Nullable`1 serverRole) at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.ConfigurationDatabaseTask.CreateOrConnectConfigDb() at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.ConfigurationDatabaseTask.Run() at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.TaskThread.ExecuteTask() 07/28/2016 21:36:06 16 INF Entering function Common.BuildExceptionMessage 07/28/2016 21:36:06 16 INF Entering function StringResourceManager.GetResourceString
