Azure Database Migration Services - Online migration not available RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Guys n Gals,

    Azure DMS is not giving me an option to create an "Online migration activity".

    I only get the option for an Offline migration activity.  This is not going to work for us since the cutover time for our database using an offline model would take too long.

    I'm following the guide: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/dms/tutorial-sql-server-azure-sql-online 

    Thanks, Marcus.

  • Hello,

    Using the Azure Database Migration Service to perform an online migration requires creating an instance based on the Business Critical (Preview) pricing tier.

    Hope this helps.
