Support for physical machine migration
Add support for assessing physical servers for migration.
Support for physical servers is under review and will be enabled in future. Regarding dependency visualization of physical servers, the workaround is to install the dependency agents on the physical machines and then visualize it in the Service Map UI outside of Azure Migrate. (You can access the workspace from the Azure Migrate project essentials pane).
Scanning entire client infrastructure is necessary ( physical and Virtual ).

Any update on this being a possibility? Love Azure migrate for VMWare, but would love to be able to assess a customer's entire environment

I work with an MSP and am planning multiple cloud migrations. This tool would be very helpful in the planning process.

Agree that analysis of physical machines would be really useful. I'm sure something could be done to bring perfmon data into the Azure Migrate project somehow. However, a nice (hopefully!) quick win would be the ability to manually add a machine into the Migration Project, push the agent out for in depth discovery and allow us to include it is the Service Maps. I'm more interested in that than I am in getting rightsized recommendations for target IaaS VMs based on perf data, that I can adjust myself.

Migration of physical (non-VM's) would really make the Azure Migrate tool useful!
This is especially important also for VMware environments where you are not allowed access to the VMware/vCenter layer, but you still need to analyse migrating them.
is it possible to migrate physical machine like Windows Server on Azure ?
