Migrate VM to Azure

Occasional Contributor

I have a virtual machine running on standalone esxi and I do not have the access to the virtual host. but I have access to the VM which runs Windows Server. How can I migrate this to Azure? I have already tried using Starwind v2v and created 2 vhds (1 for OS and 1 for Data) and uploaded them to Azure. I created an image out of the OS disks and tried deploying a VM. It's been like 45 minutes now, but still it says the deployment in progress. If this does not work, what methods I can use to migrate the VM?

The deployment has failed


Did you receive any errors after deployment failure? Are you trying to convert directly to Azure?
