  1. Hello,

    I started setting up Azure Storage Mover. My Azure file share works with a private endpoint, do I need to fill in the private link scope during the agent registration phase?

    I try to enter the full “path” of my private endpoint (Like in your article) but it doesn’t work, when I look at the documentation it says to indicate the private link scope in this form: /subscriptions/[GUID]/resourceGroups/myGroup/providers /Microsoft.HybridCompute/privateLinkScopes/myScope. I can’t find this information on Azure, I only have a private endpoint.

    In my case (Access to Azure Files Share via a private endpoint), do I need to fill in the private link scope part? If so, how can I obtain the fully qualified resource ID of the private link scope?

    Best regards,

  2. Hello Enzo, thanks for the comment and the follow-up question!
    The Private Link Scope during the agent registration phase is required only if you are planning to migrate and move your on-premises files to Azure file share over a private network (ExpressRoute or Site-to-Site VPN).
    The agent, in this case the Storage Mover Appliance needs to communicate over a Private IP address. So, if your Azure file share works with a private endpoint, it’s NOT required to fill in the private link scope during the agent registration phase. This is only needed to tell the agent to move and migrate over private networks instead of utilizing public networks.
    In other words, if you want to transfer your data over a private link, then yes you have to configure Private Link Scope with Private Endpoint for the Azure Storage Mover agent, but you don’t need that if your Azure file share has a private endpoint configured.
    I have updated the article to describe how to use Private Link Scope and private networking in Azure Storage Mover. Check this section for more information.
    Hope it helps!
