Activity

  • Consider you have migrate 10 physical servers, The servers are as follows
srv1 -> redhat 5
 srv2 -> redhat 6
 srv3 -> Windows Server 2012 R2
 srv4 -> Windows Server 2019 
 srv5 -> Ubuntu 12.04

 srv2-1 -> redhat 5
 srv2-2 -> redhat 6
 srv2-3 -> Windows Server 2012 R2
 srv2-4 -> Windows Server 2019 
 srv2-5 -> Ubuntu 12.04
  • Write down steps which you would follow to migrate above physical servers
  • Solution:
    • Verify if all the operating systems are supported for migration or not by Azure
    • If they are not supported, try upgrading the servers to the supported/compatible OS
    • Create a excel sheet with server names ip addresses , cpu, ram, storage (size and type)
    • Create a Replication Instance in your ogranizational network which has connectivity with all the servers above
    • Configure the Replication Instance
    • Download the necessary tar or installables for mobility agent on each of the source server and establish connections between source and replication instance
    • Now we can migrate 10 servers as a batch
    • Now follow the instructions to replicate server by specifying target settings
