Hello again. In my last post , I briefly touched upon the challenges application compatibility can present when planning a migration to a new version of Windows. We looked at how Upgrade Readiness provides the tools and insights to make moving to Windows 10 simpler and faster. Today, we'll look at some details on how to get started with Upgrade Readiness.
This post is intended to build on the great information that is already available on:
Hopefully this post will give you a lot of screenshots and provide a visual reference to help you get started with using Upgrade Readiness.
Before you can start using Upgrade Readiness, you will need an active Azure subscription. Starting 8 th November 2016, an Azure subscription was made mandatory for using Upgrade Readiness. If you have an existing Azure subscription, and would like to use that, you can do that. If you don’t have an existing Azure subscription or if you don’t want to use your existing Azure subscription, you can create new trial subscription ( which is also probably a good idea, if you want to test this before deciding to widen the scope of usage of Upgrade Readiness ). An Azure subscription can be created using the link below:
Your Azure subscription will not incur any costs for any data being transferred for Upgrade Readiness. So, from a cost perspective, spinning up an Azure subscription should not be a cause for concern.
Once you have an Azure subscription, follow the steps below to get stared with Upgrade Readiness.
After following these steps you should now have a fully configured Upgrade Readiness solution. The next step is configuring the clients . I will be back in a few days with the client configuration and some of the other work that is needed for the clients to be able to communicate with the Upgrade Readiness solution and the OMS workspace.
