azcopy of a zip from Ubuntu to Azure storage - long or defective copy?

David M 126 Reputation points

Good morning,

I have an Ubuntu VM on Azure on which there is a 7GB Zip.

I want to copy the file to an Azure blob storage ("backupbdd" blob, folder to create "influx").

  1. I made a token that expires in 1 year with all permissions. 02&sr=c&sig=5eVkW...
  2. I run my command from the VM: azcopy copy /datad....kups/ -01T14:12:16Z&se=2025-07-01T22:12:16Z&spr=https&sv=2022-11-02&sr=c&sig=5eVkW...
  3. My answer is: [1] 12101 [2] 12102 [3] 12103 [4] 12104 [5] 12105 [6] 12106 azureuser@MaVmInflux:/datadrive/influxdatas/backups$

It therefore returns awaiting seizure. And nothing on my storage..

Since it's a big file, I wonder if it's processing that runs in the background?

When I re-enter a command, it tells me:

[1]+ Stopped azcopy copy /datad...

How do I know what's going on? Where is it?

    Hi David M - Thanks for reaching out.

    I have 2 recommendations in here:

    Try adding Debug switch that might help in giving details as to how and what operations are happening at the backend.

    Try enabling logging to review the operations happening on the account. It will also help in verifying if there is any latency happening

    Hope that helps!

    The latest supported version of AzCopy is AzCopy v10

    You can download the newer version from the official release page. Here are the direct links for different platforms:

    Replace the Existing Version:

    • Once downloaded, replace the existing azcopy executable with the new one.
    • You can place it in any directory on your system.

    Verify the Update:

    • Run azcopy -v again to confirm that you’re now using the latest version (10.25.1).
