  1. Support true Database Migration and creation from End-to-End

    Add support for the Azure Database Migration service to create the Azure SQL databases, schema and tables. It currently does not seem much like a migration services and seems more like the Azure SQL Data Sync (Preview).

    I would have expected the service to work like the Azure Site Recovery service that takes care of moving on-premises servers to Azure. This services takes care of everything from End-to-End.

    • Update Portal to cope with many databases

      The client-side script can currently not cope with many databases (500+) and the browser gets unresponsive due to script processing.

      • Allow me to use my MSDN subscription to test this

        I can't follow the tutorial or test this out when using my MSDN Azure subscription ... E5 level. This is what I see (see attached). Anyone know what subscription I need to have or if this is a bug? I could not find help in the documentation.

          • Allow for retrying failed migrations

            The service must allow for retrial (both automated and manual) of failed migrations.

            • SQL Backup File Not Being Deleted

              Afternoon all

              Quick question re the DMS if I may?

              I'm running some testing around migrating SQL Server databases hosted on a VM to SQL Server hosted on a VM, both within Azure, using the DMS. The process works fine but I am receiving the following error (although it's not actually flagging it as an error or a warning, I only see this when I click on the individual database migration status'):

              "Failed to delete 1 out of 1 files from \\server\backup.
              Failed to delete backup or restore file '\\server\backup\2bpikijh.o5m.bak' on share '\\server\backup'.
              The network path was not found."
