Azure to AWS Virtual machine migration error


Hi The process of transferring virtual machines from Azure to AWS has become stalled. I checked after hours of waiting but received no results. Could you please describe what the problem was?

AWS Application Migration Service is usually our method to migrate to AWS. Depending on the method you are using there maybe several reasons why.

Reach out to AWS Support if you are able to so they can troubleshoot with you as another option to get help.

I feel your pain with the Azure to AWS virtual machine migration error. It can be a real head-scratcher sometimes, and I've been through my fair share of migration challenges. Let me share some insights from my own experience.

First off, the AWS Application Migration Service is indeed a powerful tool for migrating virtual machines, but it can sometimes run into hiccups due to various factors like network configurations, compatibility issues, or simply misconfigurations during setup.

Here's a suggestion: Start by checking your migration setup thoroughly. Make sure your source Azure VMs are properly prepared for migration and that the network settings are all in sync. Additionally, reviewing the AWS Application Migration Service logs can often reveal specific error messages that can point you in the right direction.

If all else fails, don't hesitate to reach out to AWS Support. They've got some brilliant minds who can dive deep into your specific issue and help you get things back on track. It might seem like a daunting step, but trust me, their expertise can make all the difference in resolving these migration hiccups.

For us, we always use cloud migration tools like Gs Richcopy 360 and ShareGate for such a migration process and both are reliable and works very well.

But to better understand your situation, could you please provide some additional context?

  • What type of virtual machine transfer are you referring to? Is it migrating the VM to another host, moving its storage location, or something else?
  • What tool or method are you using for the transfer?
  • Do you have any information about the VM size and network speeds involved?

I think if the virtual machine contains a significant amount of data, the transfer process may take a long time. It's possible that the transfer is still ongoing, and you may need to allow more time for completion.
