Move your Windows Server on-premise to Microsoft Azure
Move your Amazon EC2 Windows Instance from Amazon EC2 to Microsoft Azure
We have configured SharePoint Server and Exchange Server on AWS or premise.
It can be difficult or time-consuming to set up the same environment on Azure. In such cases, we will need to migrate preconfigured servers to Azure.
I will show you how to migrate your AWS or Windows Instance on Premise to Azure to solve the above problem.
Use a utility to convert the EC2 system hard disk drive to a virtual hard drive (VHD).
Run the script to push the VHD to Azure Blob Storage.
You can create a disk using blob storage.
Create a VM using disk.
Step 1: Create VHD
First, we will convert the system hard drive to VHD to be able to use it to create & Launch VMs. Disk2VHD utility will convert your EC2 system drive to VHD. Disk2VHD utility is a free tool that creates VHD from a physical volume. This can be used in Microsoft Hyper-V or Microsoft Virtual PC virtual machines.
Download Disk2VHD utility using the link below to install it in your EC2 instance:
These steps are required to create VHD.
Run Disk2VHD on your EC2 instance.
Check the box “Use VHDx” as well as any other option.
Choose the disc that you wish to clone. It will usually be a C drive.
Give VHD a name and the path to where you want to save it.
Do not wait for it to end.
Once VHD has been created, we can push it to Azure. First, create a storage account. We can then push VHD to Azure under Blob Storage. These are the steps to take in order to complete that action:
Log in to Azure Portal to create a Storage Account to push your VHD.
Go to storage and click “New”. Give your storage account a name and select the region you want.
Take note of the URL for blob storage that you can find on Storage Account Dashboard.
Step 2: Pushing VHD into Azure
Once the VHD has been created, run this script/cmdlets in order to push it to Azure Blob Storage.
To run these cmdlets, you will need Azure PowerShell. Click here to download Azure PowerShell
To add Azure to your account, run the following cmdlet
Azure Account cmdlet#A new window will appear in PowerShell where you are supposed to give your Azure Credentials.Add-AzureAccount12#A new window will appear in PowerShell where you are supposed to give your Azure Credentials.Add-AzureAccountAfter adding Azure Account, we need to select the Subscription where we have created Storage account in step 1. To accomplish this task, run the following cmdlet:
Azure Subscription#Give the subscription name of your Azure Account. My Azure Account’s subscription name is “Pay-As You-Go”, so I used that one. Replace “Pay-As-You-Go” with your subscription name.Select-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionName Pay-As-You-Go12#Give the subscription name that your Azure Account holds.
