The installation is real easy but I noticed that the discovery is not always working. In my case I did run this on the SQL server.

When the Installer is finished I ran the Assessment toolkit.

In this case I used SQL server the method is the same only the result is different.

Yes it is not the MAP toolkit just one server at the time.

Windows  Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit

The Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit makes it easy to assess your current IT infrastructure for a variety of technology migration projects. This Solution Accelerator provides a powerful inventory, assessment, and reporting tool to simplify the migration planning process.

after a little coffee break the scan is done and the report is ready. You can save and edit this as it is a Word file.

As I did the Next Next method I need some planning when I migrate this SQL server to Azure.

the report is in detail and 62 pages long. It could be handy if you don’t know anything about this server.

But if you want to test the migration and already running VMM and have a S2S VPN to Azure read my other blog post.
