Hello @RickWagner-2344 - Sorry for the inconvenience this must have caused!

Thanks for sharing the details that helps me understand that you are migrating servers (VMware and Physical) to Azure. However, you hit a road blocker that failed to enable protection job.

Can i migrate a physicals server if its using multipath?
Per support matrix - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/migrate/migrate-support-matrix-physical-migration#physical-server-requirements multipath IO is not supported.

IMO, multiple IO might be the reason for the failures.

yup I agree, has anyone removed multi-path from a server before? I have never done it. Anyone see any issues or concerns, lost data? thanks

I don't think that will cause any issues or data loss. However, you can confirm the same by posting that specific question in the respective forum.
