I want to deploy my application to azure with powershell. So far I have created a certificate in the localmachine store, I'm not going to run the deploy script as me, uploaded the script to azure. The next step is to get access to the service on azure in powershell but there it fails. The script I have so far is:
$cert = Get-Item Cert:\LocalMachine\deploy\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Set-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionName $subscriptionName -SubscriptionId $subscriptionId -Certificate $cert Select-AzureSubscription $subscriptionName $service = Get-AzureService $azureId
It fails on the last row with the following message:
Get-AzureService : Communication could not be established. This could be due to an invalid subscription ID. Note that subscription IDs are case sensitive. At F:\DeployTest\deploy.ps1:9 char:12 + $service = Get-AzureService $azureId + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidData: (:) [Get-AzureService], Exception + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Management.ServiceManagement.HostedServices.GetAzureServiceCommand Get-AzureService : HTTP Status Code: AuthenticationFailed - HTTP Error Message: The server failed to authenticate the request. Verify that the certificate is valid and is associated with this subscription. Operation ID: At F:\DeployTest\deploy.ps1:9 char:12 + $service = Get-AzureService $azureId + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : CloseError: (:) [Get-AzureService], CommunicationException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Management.ServiceManagement.HostedServices.GetAzureServiceCommand
I really don't know what the problem is, the certificate I'm trying to use is uploaded so it feels like there is something fundamental I've missed.
Update: I did get it to work after downloading the .publishsettings-file and importing that instead of trying to use
Set-AzureSubscription. I'm still a little bit confused though, shouldn't it be possible to use the method I tried above?
