How do I extract a .tar file on Azure File Share on Ubuntu 18.04? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a virtual machine in Azure running Ubuntu 18.04. On this machine, I have mounted an Azure File Share as a file share.

    Now I'm looking to extract a large file on the mounted drive and it fails. I'm logged in with an admin account.

    /mnt/folder/data$ tar xvzf data.tar.gz

    The following error is thrown:

    tar: Cannot utime: Operation not permitted

    How do I change the permissions on Azure File Share to allow .tar files to be extracted when the admin account is logged in?
