Move logs from VM to azure blob storage

Muhammad Zeeshan 241 Reputation points


In my infrastructure all the logs generated by a VM and the application hosted on it are being stored on the VM itself.

I want to move them from the VM and onto Azure Storage account.

How can this be achieved ?

    I understand that you want to move logs from your VM to blob storage. The easiest way to move these files is to use Storage Explorer. Storage Explorer is a GUI which will allow you to easily upload your files to the blob container of your choice. If you wish to accomplish this via CLI you can use AzCopy. Here is a nice guide on using AzCopy with blob storage to upload from a VM.

    Hope this helps! Let us know if you have further questions or run into any issues.
