I have some general questions on azure migrate and need help with the same :
1)I an using azure Migrate to migrate one of the Guest VM's that resides on HYPER-v server . If i understand it correct for azure migrate makes use of azure recovery services agent to replicate the VM's to azure . Am i correct on this ? So the process that is responsible is cbengine.exe ?
When log file should i reference to troubleshoot issues related to replication ?

2)The replication is enabled from the Hyper-v server and i want to look at the replication logs on the Hyper-v server . Why i am asking this question is because? It is azure site recovery agent and it would establish the connection to azure . I would like to understand this agent basically establishes the connection with cache storage account of the target machine and how much data has been replicated.

Can you help me with the log file path path on the hyper-v server itself?

3) Does azure recovery agent installed on the HYper-v server basically replicates the data to cachestorage account and that cachestorageaccount inturns sends the data to the actual data disk for that VM in azure ? Is this how it works ?

    Hi @kumar kaushal - Apologies for delayed response!

    You can check if the Hyper-V hosts can connect to Azure Storage using cbengine. All Hyper-V replication events are logged in the Admin log, located in Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows. Please refer to this document to know the event log locations. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/site-recovery/hyper-v-azure-troubleshoot#event-log-locations

    The following documents have the answers to all the other questions:
