Hi
I want to convert an entire physical machine (Windows 10) to Microsoft Azure. I have seen the proceedure https://www.starwindsoftware.com/v2v-he ... Azure.html

My question is do I have to also create the Virtual Machine in Azure first with the same discs etc ? or will the software do this for me? and lastly do I have to register the application as I cannot find any prerequistes.

Thanks :)

Welcome to StarWind Forum :)
The software will do that for you. Yet, if you decide to convert individual disks, you will need to connect them to a VM afterward.

Hi,

You are always welcome :)
This is done as a part of account preparation. Without it, conversion will not simply happen as the destination is not ready to act on the requests.
Cheers,

Hi Yaroslav

Do you have any documentation on how to register the application or is that done at the time of "Enter the Azure Connection Parameters"

Thank you again :)

Yes, we do (please note this is an Azure side of the setup). https://www.starwindsoftware.com/v2v-he ... Azure.html

It looks like the Azure side is not ready to accept the VM. Please make sure Azure is configured right.

Hi

Thanks again for the reply.

What should I be looking for on the Azure side?
I followed this document https://www.starwindsoftware.com/v2v-he ... Azure.html

Thanks again

That's strange. Thank you for your update.
The error code indicates an issue with the connection to Azure. Does your account have enough privileges to access all resources?

Hi

We followed the instructions provided, The App registration has contributor access to the subscription in Azure, The wizard did create a storage account and uploaded the converted VHD files but seem to fail when tring to create the virtual machine resource. Are we missing any permissions that are not included in the instructions.

Thanks

I think the Azure side of the setup is not configured correctly. It can also mean that Microsoft has changed again something on the Azure side so that new setups do not work well.
