When assessing if a device is eligible for Azure Site Recovery (ASR), Movere performs a macro-level compatibility check of the VM operating system and the operating system of the host against the following criteria:
- Physical devices running qualifying Windows Server OS, including 2008R2, 2012, 2012R2 and 2016
- Physical devices running Linux OS
- Virtual devices running an Azure supported Windows Server OS on a qualifying host OS, (including Hyper-V 2012R2, 2016, 2019 or ESXi 5.x, 6.x)
- Virtual devices running Linux on a qualifying host OS, including 2012R2, 2016 or ESXi5.x, 6.x
For more information on ASR compatibility requirements, (such as storage type or disk encryption), please refer to the Azure Site Recovery documentation.
