How to use azure Storage Sync group to sync on-premise File Server to azure IaaS VM folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to found a solution of how to sync a on-premise server with two disks (Disk:C ,Disk:D) to an Azure IaaS Server folder, if you know something about it, please let me know.

    For ex: On-premise Server A with Disk E and D.  Azure Storage Sync, Azure IaaS VM (Server B) Disk D have two Folders.

    Server A  Disk D's (Share Folder d) ⇔ Azure Files ⇔ Azure IaaS VM Disk D →Folder "ServerA"→Directory "shareD"

    Server A Disk E's (Share Folder e) ⇔Azure files ⇔ Azure IaaS VM Disk D →Folder "ServerA" →Directory "shareE".

    Is it possible to achieve the goal with one Storage Sync Group.

    Thanks so much.

  • Azure Storage Sync service synchronize the data from registered on-premise server to "Azure file share", which is not a disk attached to a VM. 

    But you can map the azure file share to IaaS VM as mapped disk if needed.

  • Thanks so much, I know that, what I want to say are the disks' share folders, not the disk. And I want to make sure if I can sync the different share folder within one Sync Group.

  • Thats possible, you can add a new Server Endpoint within the sync groups.
