Microsoft Azure instances will require the Azure username and password as well as IP address, username and password for the Target.

Once the appropriate information is entered, you need to select Verify login to assure credentials entered for the target node are correct. If login is successful, the Next button in the lower right will become active. Select Next and Lift and Shift will begin setting up the communication between the Source and Target.
