Troubleshooting on-prem to Azure DB migration

My aim was to recursively copy ten DB tables from an on-prem SQL Database to the Azure cloud. Key technologies involved are SQL server, Host integration (self-hosted) Run Time, Data pipelines using Azure Data Factory and Azure cloud storage using ADLS Gen 2.

I will share three problems I faced and resolutions for the same. The traditional documentation available were of less help.

In few cases, the ERROR messages given were of less help and were not connected to the ERROR.




Error 1 (a)

While configuring the integration runtime, the authorization with the Azure provided key was failing

Checked the System Clock - The incorrect on-prem system time need to be correctly set

MS Host integration runtime

Error 2(b)

Copying few Tables succeeded while other copies failed

Added the missing @ in SQL script syntax - We are using SQL scripts to automate. There were some syntax errors.

Azure Data Factory, SQL query feature for specifying Sink

Error 3 (b)

The migration process failed throwing error

Corrected the SQL script syntax error- missing space after FROM @{concat('SELECT * FROM ', item().SchemaName, '.', item().TableName)}

Building Copy Data pipeline in Azure Data Factory

(a). The Integration (self-hosted) Run Time node has encountered an error during registration. The integration (Self-hosted) node failed to connect to the cloud service due to network connectivity issues. Check network connectivity issues.
