Virtual Machines Offer - where to add the result of certification test tool?



I have created a VM without data disk just VHD which contain the OS and our application. I have run the "certification tool" and generated the results as zip file. Where exactly should I add this zip file? Should I start my image, connect through SSH and add this zip under my user home dir: /users/ubuntu ?

Hi Yuval,


Happy Tuesday!

If your offer is eligible and passed all validations you should publish it in Partner Center.

You can refer to this documentation for next steps: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/marketplace/partner-center-portal/publishing-status#certification 


Let me know if this helps,

Hi Andra,


Thanks for your response.

I have run the certification tool as described here:


At the end, it is written: "...Save the results in the same container as your VHD(s)." 

My offer is of VIRTUAL MACHINES type, not a container.

The results is a zip file:  T2_07_02_2019_03_08_22.zip

Where should I attach this zip file?

Put the zip in the same storage account blob container as the vhd.

Executing the following command:

./azcopy cp ../T2_07_02_2019_03_08_22.zip https://yuvaldoridisks826.blob.core.windows.net/certification-tool-results/T2_07_02_2019_03_08_22.zip


I'm receiving an authorization error. See below. the full log is attached. 

(I had no problem creating the container by execute:

./azcopy make https://yuvaldoridisks826.blob.core.windows.net/certification-tool-results)
