Need to copy a Linux VM from myAzure.com to CustomerAzure.com (2 different subscriptions)

I need to copy a Linux VM that already has Oracle installed on it to a different Azure subscription. I tried following these steps published by Microsoft, but when I gave the user (not in our domain) access to the resource group, he could not see it in his "resource groups".

Here is a little background on what is going on. Let's call my Azure portal me@me.com and I need to copy a Linux VM that has Oracle installed on it to customer@customer.com's Azure subscription. By reading the article below, it's supposed to be as simple as me granting customer@customer.com "ArcPull" to my resource group in my Azure portal. However after doing that and having a screen share with the customer, he is unable to see the resource group I gave him access to. I had him click on "resource groups" in his azure portal. The only resource groups he saw were the ones he created.

I need to clone this Linux VM into his Azure portal because we had an Oracle consultant setup Oracle on Oracle Linux and import a database from the Oracle EBS system. So trying to rebuild this VM and importing the Oracle data would be very time consuming, and I can't for the life of me see why a VM cannot be cloned from my subscription to his.

This is the article I am trying to follow with no luck:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/move-vm

Use the Azure portal to move a VM to a different subscription
You can move a VM and its associated resources to a different subscription by using the Azure portal.
1.      Open the Azure portal.
2.      Click Browse > Resource groups and select the resource group containing the VM that you would like to move.
3.      At the top of the page for the resource group, select Move and then select Move to another subscription. The Move resources page opens.
4.      Select each of the resources to move. In most cases, you should move all of the related resources that are listed.
5.      Select the Subscription where you want the VM to be moved.
6.      Select an existing Resource group, or enter a name to have a new resource group created.
7.      When you are done, select that you understand that new resource IDs will be created and that the new IDs will need to be used with the VM after it is moved, and then select OK.
