    Hello @Harsha Parasa Thank you for reaching out to us on Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to help!

    Based on the information you shared, I understand you want to know how to select Premium SSD v2 data disk / Ultra disk at the time of replication in the Azure migrate tool. You can select the disk type for the target VM during the replication setup process. Here are the steps to select the disk type:

    1. In the Azure Migrate project, navigate to the Replicate tab and select the source server you want to replicate.
    2. In the Replicate settings, select the target location and resource group for the replicated VM.
    3. In the Compute settings, select the VM size and OS disk type for the replicated VM.
    4. In the Disks settings, select the disks that need to be replicated to Azure and choose the disk type for each disk. You can choose between Standard HDD, Standard SSD, Premium SSD, and Ultra disk.
    5. Review the replication settings and click on the Replicate button to start the replication process.

    During the replication process, the Azure Migrate tool will create a target VM in Azure with the selected disk type for each disk. If you choose Premium SSD or Ultra disk, the target VM will be provisioned with the corresponding disk type in Azure.

    Note that the disk type selection may be limited by the VM size and the Azure region you are replicating to. Additionally, the disk type selection may affect the cost of the replicated VM, so you should choose the disk type based on your performance and cost requirements.
