How can I download a .vhd image to my local machine from azure and upload the same to a different azure account?

0 votes

All i want here is to download a VM image onto my local machine and upload the same to a different Azure account on cloud. 
I even tried to use the blob URL but wget could not help me to download it and the following error occured:
<Error>
<Code>ResourceNotFound</Code>
<Message>
The specified resource does not exist. RequestId:e7ffa746-b35c-44f3-a354-af2abfdaa823 Time:2012-09-27T18:07:00.3196644Z
</Message>
</Error>

 I am having a rough time because of the CMDlets not being able to work properly in multiple credentials. Can any one suggest me a best way to perform this operation?

The most efficient way is to use an open source explorer used to handle/manage Azure storage: http://azurestorageexplorer.codeplex.com/
It handles multiple credentials smoothly without any conflicts, and also lets you perform several managerial operations(copy, rename, delete, and download) withou hassle.
So, once you have downloaded the .vhd file from any account on to the local machine, try uploading the file using the below simple command:

  azure vm disk upload 

- on PowerShell.

From the Windows Azure Portal you can easily download the VHD. Just navigate to STORAGE and then the storage account in which your virtual disk is created. Select CONTAINERS (at the top), open the container named "vhds". Just click the vhd you want and select DOWNLOAD (at the bottom of the page).

I hope this helps.

Do you need to stop the VM to be able to download it ?  We just want to be able to download a snapshot and boot it up and test.  thanks, Scott
